Well, on June 29th Girl Scouts of Western Oklahoma teamed up with some Orange Leaf stores to help raise funds for Troops for Troops, an organization that sends a little taste of home – boxes of Girls Scout cookies - to our soldiers overseas.
Troops 256 and 1256 of Girl Scouts of Western Oklahoma performed the Presentation of Colors and demonstrated modern scouting activities, such as the art of making personalized, tie-dye stationery with nothing more than water, food coloring and a whole lot of bubbles. All day, Girl Scouts in uniform received free frozen yogurt. Any cookie sales or donations went directly to Troops for Troops.
The day was full of fun, tasty treats and valuable lessons about the importance of giving back. We are excited and proud to have partnered with such a great organization and look forward to future endeavors.

Girl Scouts Cookies to be sent to soldiers overseas; made available as yogurt topping in OK
OKLAHOMA CITY —On Wednesday, June 29, 2011, Orange Leaf Yogurt will officially kick off apartnership with Girls Scouts of Western Oklahoma to raise money for Troops for Troops, an organization that sends Girl Scout Cookies to troops overseas.
From 4 - 6 p.m. on Wednesday, June 29, Orange Leaf Yogurt will be giving away free yogurt to all Girl Scouts in uniform at the 7550 N May Ave. location in Oklahoma City. At 4:30 p.m., the Girl Scouts will perform the Presentation of Colors. Girl Scouts will be in attendance demonstrating STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) activities that is part of the Girl Scouts pathway to leaderships. Representatives from both organizations will be in attendance.
“This is an exciting opportunity for Girl Scouts and for the community,” said Cathy Stackpole, CEO for Girl Scouts of Western Oklahoma. “Girl Scouts believe in the Promise to serve the community and to help people at all times. We know that our military love opening a package from home and seeing Girl Scout Cookies. It represents home, family, and community in a unique way. We sincerely thank Orange Leaf and their customers for helping us raise the necessary funds to transport this little piece of home to our military – and we hope everyone will come out and support this effort and, while there, try a Girl Scout Cookie topping on some delicious frozen yogurt!”
Through July 31st, at all Oklahoma City, Edmond, Norman and Lawton-area Orange Leaf stores, customers can indulge in Girl Scout Thin Mints from the toppings bar on any of the 16 available self-serve frozen yogurt flavors. At check-out, guests will be invited to donate their change to Troops for Troops.
“Orange Leaf ran a multi-state promotion recently where we raised money for veteran- and soldier-related charities. We’re keeping that momentum going though our support of the Girl Scouts program, Troops for Troops,” said Reese Travis, Orange Leaf CEO. “And with the Girl Scouts’ main focus being on leadership, and with our brand leading the self-serve frozen yogurt industry, it was a natural match.”
