RICHMOND, Va. -- Uppy's Convenience Stores is offering space to the Central Virginia Girl Scout Troops at 17 of its 43 locations during their annual sales drive to sell cookies. The girls will also be given complimentary hot chocolate, the company reported.
And to kick off the cookie season, Uppy's President Steve Uphoff purchased 200 boxes of Girl Scout cookies with plans to send them to U.S. troops serving overseas.
"I am excited and honored to be supporting Girl Scout troops all across the Richmond area," said Uphoff in a released statement. "I'm confident that Uppy's can help make this one of the best sales years the Richmond Girl Scouts have seen."
"The Girl Scout Cookie Sale Program is an integral part of Girl Scouting's Business and Economic Literacy Initiative," said Janice Williams, vice president of marketing and communications for the Girl Scout Commonwealth Council of Virginia. "The proceeds are a major funding source for the Girl Scout program in central Virginia. We are glad that Uppy's is a business supporter that will help 16,000 Girl Scouts, ages 5-17, achieve their goals."
