The annual event has been dubbed “Thin Mint Thursday.”

“We are always proud to be able to support efforts that help the community,” Danielle Shockey, CEO of Girl Scouts of Central Indiana, said. “Whether through ‘Cookies for a Cause’ or in ways that celebrate giving back, like the blood drive Thin Mints efforts, Girl Scout cookies and community service are in the Girls Scouts’ DNA and we are happy to do our small part to support Versiti’s efforts.”
