Charlotte Team Distributes 82,499 Girl Scout Cookie Cases to Local Troops

Our Charlotte professionals assisted in the distribution of thousands of cases of cookies in preparation for Girl Scout cookie season.

From a recent Girl Scout cookie rally event to assisting with the distribution of cases to troops throughout the Charlotte area in 2022, Hilldrup has been glad to lend a hand to local Girl Scout troops across Charlotte, NC. Now, in our second year of assisting with the distribution, we were ready to make this event another sweet success!

On February 3 and 4, our Charlotte professionals were readily available to help the Girl Scouts, alongside their troop leaders and parents, with distributing cases of the nine delicious Girl Scout cookie types for their 2023 season. From mid-sized vehicles to U-Hauls, the Girl Scouts and their families came prepared!

During the two-day event, there were three large releases for the Girl Scouts, Hornets’ Nest Council. First, home drops were accommodated for 13 smaller troops totaling 9,800 cases delivered!

Next, a pickup location was available at Mecklenburg County’s Sportsplex at Matthews for 139 troops. Two drive-thru lanes were set up for loading with 9 loading points.

Finally, on Saturday, Hilldrup Charlotte’s warehouse served as a pick-up location for 201 troops. There were 5 lanes which contained nine loading points for each of the nine Girl Scout cookie types.Our team assisted with breaking down pallets and stacking the cases of cookies that largely took over our outdoor space!

“On average, each pallet has between 160-200 cases of cookies on it with 10-12 layers high,” described Ashley Gatewood, Workplace Solutions Account Manager. “So, needless to say, our team gets a great workout in!”

Meanwhile, Girl Scout volunteers were on-site to double-check the final count of the cases and load them into personal vehicles.

In total, over 350 troops were served between Mecklenburg County’s Sportsplex at Matthews location and our Hilldrup warehouse. For the 2023 Girl Scout cookie season, Hilldrup Charlotte received 82,499 cases of cookies to assist in distributing!

To say thank you to everyone who came out to make this event seamless, Hilldrup catered a breakfast and lunch on-site for our volunteers and service teams. Thank you to everyone who helped make this event possible to ensure local Girl Scout troops were ready for a sweet and successful cookie selling season!
