Tennessee Cookie Sale Profits Provide Service Dog for Classmate

In Tennessee, Girl Scout Junior Troop # 28088 from Loudon County has helped to make the world a better place! They learned that a classmate, Parker Brown, had severe seizures and needed a service dog to protect him and to get help when necessary. Service dogs are specially trained and are very expensive, so the Girl Scouts sold 3,444 boxes Girl Scout cookies and held car washes in order to donate about $6,000 toward the cost of the dog. In collaboration with other Girl Scout troops and many community volunteers, more money was earned so that now Parker's family will be able to get a service dog, an oxygen monitor, and a bed alarm.

Kudos to Troop 28088! Do you have similar stories to share?
