Paxton International started the year off by supporting a good cause - local Girl Scout Troop 1766. For decades, Paxton has sponsored one lucky troop through the Paxton Annual Cookie Drive. This year, we bought hundreds of boxes from Girl Scout Troop 1766, adding to the thousands of boxes purchased over the years! We are excited to further the Girl Scouts mission to build girls of courage, confidence, and character to make the world a better place.
Girl Scout Troop 1766 will use the 2016 cookie sale proceeds to cook meals for the Hilda Barg Homeless Shelter. They will also be supplying them with toiletry items and activities boxes for the kids. What a great way to utilize the proceeds, great job Troop 1766!
The Girl Scouts is a non-profit leadership development organization for girls started over 100 years ago - just about the time the Paxton family got into the transportation business. The organization - more than 2 million strong- believes girls can change the world - and so does Paxton!
