Thousands of boxes of Girl Guide cookies have arrived in Calgary

It’s one of the sweetest deliveries on AMJ Campbell Moving Company’s calendar.

Saturday more than 17,000 cases of Girl Guide cookies landed at company’s warehouse at 1722 118 Avenue N.E.

Calgary Girl Guides were there to pick up their cases and soon roughly 204,000 boxes of cookies will be hitting the streets.

“Today we’re working with AMJ Campbell so they’re here helping us get the cookies out to everyone,” said Megan Belenky the Calgary area Girl Guide PR advisor. “I think we have about 30 volunteers here today and then we will have from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. just constant traffic coming to pick up all their cookies.”

This time around they will be selling the classic vanilla and chocolate cookies and once again the price is $6.00 per box.

From the initial inception of Girl Guide cookies in 1927, cookie sales continue to be the official fundraiser for Girl Guides of Canada.

Each box of Girl Guide Cookies sold helps support diverse and exciting program and activities for members.

“Today is so important because this is our main fundraiser for girl guides. Cookies are what get our girls out to camps, traveling  and their program badges and it just helps them become better, more confident young ladies,” said Belenky. “We had a unit the other night go to a cooking class, we’ve got some units traveling over to Europe this summer and if they want to go to camp we have a few camps happening across the country this year.”

Twice a year, AMJ Campbell Moving Company partners with Girl Guides of Canada to help distribute the cookies from coast-to-coast-to-coast.

The company delivers to Happy Valley-Goose Bay out east, to Vancouver Island out west, and all the way up to Inuvik in the Northwest Territories.
