Last year, 9-year-old Lakeview resident and St. Andrew student Giada Gambatese sold 13,061 boxes of Girl Scout cookies and donated them to the Gift of Caring Program, which sends the cookies to organizations that put together care packages for members of the military.
This year, she wanted to sell even more...the total count? 30,120!!!
"I'm going to try to sell even more next year because I want to reach another goal," she said, adding that she hopes to reach 100,000 boxes in 2018.
