Initially spotted in the vicinity of Hillview School just before Ski Week, the Cookie Mobile is the newest way to buy “on demand” Girl Scout cookies. With the help of their mom/driver, Liza McMichaels, two Menlo Park school girls, Kenyon and Morgonn, have set a goal of selling 3,000 boxes between now and March 27. If successful, they’ll earn an iPad as well as a lot of satisfaction.
“My troop asked me to sell only 85 boxes,” said Brownie Kenyon. “We’ve already sold over 750 [as of last Wednesday].”
Cadet Morgonn explained that the Cookie Mobile “goes where the people are,” which has meant after school at Hillview, every day except Monday. It will be in downtown Menlo Park today (2/26). Kenyon and her troop will be near Wells Fargo Bank between 1:00 and 3:00 pm. Morgonn and her troop will have two Safeway/El Camino shifts – from 9:00 to 11:00 am and from 5:00 to 7:00 pm as well as a Wells Fargo appearance from 3:00 to 5:00 pm.
For those of us who remember the painful process of selling cookies door-to-door, the two girls checked that off first. They’ve already knocked on every door within four blocks of their neighborhood. No opportunity is overlooked in their quest to sell 3,000 boxes!
