GLEN CARBON – Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois and Schnucks are teaming up to bring a sweet treat to military service members.
From now until April 2, for every $4 donation a Schnucks customer makes to Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois through a Scan & Give campaign at checkout, a box of Girl Scout Cookies will be gifted to the USO of Missouri. The promotion is running in all 100 Schnucks locations and seven additional Girl Scout councils are participating.
“Schnucks continues to be very supportive of Girl Scouting and our mission of building future leaders,” said Kelly Jansen, director of product program. “This promotion allows the community to support Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois and potentially offers more members of our community the opportunity to provide a favorite national treat to our brave military service personnel.”
“We are proud of our longstanding partnership with the Girls Scouts throughout our trade areas,” said Joanie Taylor, Schnucks director of community relations. “As a company, we are dedicated to exploring new and different ways to partner with community groups, and this Scan & Give with the Girls Scouts and the USO is an excellent example of this commitment.”
To make a donation at the checkout, customers select a slip from the register tear pad and give it to the cashier to scan. The donation amount will be added to the customer’s bill. Store patrons have the option to donate in three different amounts up to $20.
Customers can order Girl Scout Cookies online through March 19 using Girl Scouts’ interactive Digital Cookie platform. Digital Cookie combines traditional sales activities with today’s technology to help girls learn more about online marketing and ecommerce.
Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois serves more than 12,400 girls and nearly 5,000 adult volunteers in 41 counties in Southern Illinois.
