Girl Scout Cookie Buyout – Spangdahlem

At Spangdahlem Air Base, Loan Service Representative Sabrina recently discovered that local Girl Scouts face unique challenges due to their overseas location. The girls scout troops are responsible for the cost of any unsold cookies, as regulations prevent them from shipping unsold stock back to the United States. The Service CU’s Spangdahlem branch seized an opportunity to support the local community, purchasing the remaining cookie inventory and distributing them to members as a gesture of goodwill. This initiative not only alleviated the financial burden on the Girl Scouts but also delighted credit union members with an unexpected treat.

Service CU's Spangdahlem branch purchased the local Girl Scouts' unsold cookies and gave them out to members for free.
