UNION, NJ - Union High School students recently volunteered their time to help out a local Union Girl Scout troop sort and distribute Girl Scout Cookies.
The troop, under the leadership of Shonda Dennis, is comprised of 8th, 9th, and 10th grade students from across the town. Dennis serves as the Service Unit Cookie Manager, and she and her troop organize community service cookie sorting events, seeking help from members of the community to assist.
UHS students unloaded two truckloads of cookies, totaling 2,231 cases. Some students came in early and stayed later until every last box was distributed and cleaned up at the end of the night.
“The most beautiful part was that all of the students carried a positive attitude the entire time,” said Dennis. “They were amazing. Working side by side with the students felt as though we were working with peers. They were very professional.”
“Having the Union High School students there really saved the day,” continued Dennis. “Honestly, words can't express how grateful we all are. Union High School is the best.”
