Wheaton World Wide Agents Deliver Girl Scout Cookies to Local Troops
Wheaton World Wide Moving is known for it’s interstate delivery of household goods and providing moving services throughout the United States. A potentially lesser-known fact is that Wheaton World Wide agents also put their equipment and resources to good use helping their local communities. For example, Preferred Moving & Storage and Claeys Brothers Moving & Storage both have brought together their resources to help their local Girl Scout troops store and deliver the famous Girl Scout Cookies.
Preferred Moving & Storage – Harrison Township, Mich.
Preferred Moving & Storage stored 60,000 cookies in their warehouse up until February when they made personal, home deliveries to the Girl Scouts who sold three hundred or more cases of cookies. Preferred also stocks cupboard sites, which are various home or council locations for the Girl Scouts to pick up additional cookies as needed.
From Feb. 12-14, Preferred delivered approximately 40,000 cases of cookies to various malls, schools and churches where the troop leaders pick them up from trailers. The 7,000 remaining cases are stored at Preferred Moving & Storage to be restocked at cupboard sites every Wednesday for the next four-to-five weeks. At the conclusion of the sale, Preferred will move the remaining cookies from the cupboard locations and take them to the Girl Scout headquarters.
Claeys Brothers Moving & Storage – Sioux City, Iowa
This is the third year Claey’s Moving & Storage has helped out the Siouxland Girl Scout troops. They work with 97 troops in the Sioux City and surrounding areas, which covers 120 miles. In one day, Claeys Brothers Moving & Storage hands out 15,000 cases of cookies, which requires 18 helpers to load and deliver the cookies. Claey’s takes pride in donating their labor to help the Girl Scouts. Claey’s Brothers also stores 23,000 cases for 30 days.
Claeys doesn’t just help with cookies, they also store and deliver peanuts and candy for the Girl Scouts.
