New cookie donor program helps Girl Scouts reach their goals

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Cookie Season is here and it's off to a strong start.

Girl Scouts have officially started setting up in front of local businesses. Their goal is to sell out

Thanks to the new Cookie Donor Buyout Program, two lucky troops were able to do that Saturday.

"It was a great way to start our Saturday morning, that's for sure," says Marisa Moore, Bank of America's Market Manager for Fresno and Visalia. "What we were really looking most forward to was the look on the girl's faces when we walked up and see how excited and proud that they were."

The Cookie Donor Buyout Program allows businesses to buy out the entire booth to support the girls. Bank of America was one of the first companies to participate.

This is the first year this program is available here in the valley.
