Girl Scouts take Cookie Caravan through Knoxville

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- For National Girl Scout Cookie Day, local troops are fanning out across the Knoxville on Friday to encourage people to buy or order more boxes. In addition, they'll drop by some local agencies to deliver everybody's favorite treat - milk and cookies.

In addition to stopping by a fire station and shelter, they'll also head over to the Medic Regional Blood Center's headquarters, 1601 Ailor Ave., to hand out cookies to everyone who donated blood.

Between noon and 1:00 p.m., they'll head down to to Market Square to sell cookies to hungry lunch-goers.

National Girl Scout Cookie Day honors the largest girl-led business enterprise in the world. Local troops earned more than a million dollars last year, while the Girl Scouts made $790 million worldwide. The average scout in East Tennessee sells an average of 183 boxes.
