Girl Scout CEO Amy Dosik and several Girl Scouts were on hand with Mark Spain at the Atlanta Community Food Bank. Everyone helped unload thousands of boxes from the Girl Scout truck.
"When I heard the story of how Girl Scout cookie sales were being impacted across the nation, I wanted to help these young women get closer to their goals," explained Chairman and CEO Mark Spain. "The Girl Scout's cookie sales fund their community outreach programs and allow young women in our communities to be Girl Scouts regardless of their financial or life circumstances."
Mark Spain founded the foundation in 2016 after realizing one in five families in the local community were on some form of scholarship or financial assistance to access programs for children to grow and be successful. It was his personal call to action to make a positive impact. The Mark Spain Foundation prioritizes investing in initiatives that provide kids access to programs to help them grow, stay healthy, learn and be successful.
"Kids can't control the situation they are born into, and I believe it is my and my team's responsibility to give back to our communities and make a difference in their lives," said Spain.

One hundred percent of cookie profits stay within the Girl Scout Council. This money is used to fund service projects, troop adventures and camping programs as well as financial aid to thousands of girls so they can be a part of Girl Scouts. While the organization saw a 150% increase of online cookies sales this year, it wasn't enough to make up for the lack of cookie booths or door-to-door sales due to the pandemic.
While the deadline has passed to order Girl Scout cookies online directly, the organization still has the site, www.ShowMeTheCookies.com, active for people to donate cookie purchases to local and state food banks.
