Across the country every year Girl Scouts can be seen selling Girl Scout Cookies.

Whether it’s outside a local grocery store or a sheet at work cookies are being sold across the country.

What isn’t universal though is what the troops do with the money.

Some troops may use the money made to send girls to Girl Scouts Camp while some may use it to help the troop.

For two girls their goal wasn’t to sell cookies to raise money for the troop or to go to camp instead they sold cookies this year to help two local animal shelters

“ I love animals,” Allie Bergemann said when she was asked why she decided to raise money for the animal shelters.

Last week Allie along with her sister Paige smiled wide as they presented the Watonwan County Humane Society with a check for $500 for the shelter.

They also presented a check for $500 to BENCHS as well. With a goal of 1,000 boxes to sell Allie said that she reached her goal and then some selling 1,500 boxes this year.

Bergemann said that next year she thinks she can sell more boxes of cookies and hopes to do so by selling 2,000 boxes next year.
