Girl Scout Cookies Sweeten the Ride for Easy Lift’s Passengers

The organization hands out $600 worth of treats to its frail-elderly and disabled riders

Nine-year-old Morgan Fell of Troop 50382 was a lucky Girl Scout this year, with Easy Lift Transportation purchasing $600 worth of Girls Scout cookies from her.

Fell said the proceeds would be used to help carry out her service project for the year as well as help fund many fun activities.

Girl Scouts depend on cookie proceeds to fund programs that help them develop essential life skills such as financial literacy, money management, business ethics and customer service skills.

Fell said she feels like she is doing a good deed because her cookies are going out to the frail-elderly and disabled passengers of Easy Lift Transportation.

On Friday, every passenger riding with Easy Lift had the difficult decision of choosing to take home Thin Mints, Samoas, Lemonades, Trefoils or Peanut Butter Patties.

This is the fourth spring that Easy Lift Transportation has shown its appreciation for its passengers by handing out Girl Scout cookies.

“Every year the passengers are gracious and extremely delighted to take home a box of Girl Scout cookies,” Easy Lift driver Geoff Keller said.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
