March 12--  This past Saturday Girl Scout Troop 30396 of Fort Stewart and Troop 30138 of Hinesville donated 454 boxes of Girl Scout cookies to the Tommy and Shirley Strickland Cancer Center in Vidalia.

When given the chance to donate to a charity of their choice, they decided to give to cancer patients since the disease has affected many families in their troop. The girls named their campaign “If you can’t eat them, treat them.” Individuals who purchased cookies donated them back to the troop for patients at the Cancer Center.
