The SUNY Canton College Association recently gave students Girl Scout cookies as an after-dinner treat at Chaney Dining Center.
The College Association works with young women from Troop 328 in Russell to support their fund raising efforts and distribute cookies to students with a SUNY Canton meal plan. More than 400 students received a free box of cookies this year.
“The Girl Scouts are always very well received,” noted Susan Law, director of dining services. “Some of our students are either active or former scouts, so they enthusiastically welcome the young women. They were really excited about a free box of cookies too.”
Proceeds from the cookie drive support the area troop and can help the scouts donate items or food to community members in need, according to Troop Leader Amanda D. Rowley. “Proceeds also allow us to go on a day-trip every summer. Most recently, we went to see Matilda on stage at the Syracuse Landmark Theatre.”
