Girl Scouts donate cookies to East Boston Community Soup Kitchen


The Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts (GSEMA) celebrated Valentine’s Day this year by donating cookies to seven local non-profit organizations in the Greater Boston Area for their annual ‘Share the Love’ event.

The Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts spent the day delivering 1,100 cases (that’s nearly 250,000 cookies) of their famous cookies to those who might not be able to spend the day with their loved ones.

In hopes to share some love on cupid’s holiday, this past Tuesday, GSEMA stopped in East Boston. The East Boston Community Soup Kitchen received 100 cases as well as the YMCA of Greater Boston’s Food Distribution Center received 200 cases.
