DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - An anonymous donor from Dubuque has purchased 500 boxes of Girl Scout cookies, requesting that they be offered to local charities and organizations in the area.

Missy Sweeney is the senior membership outreach manager for the Girl Scout troop of eastern Iowa and western Illinois girls. She says similar donations have been made elsewhere, but that it’s the first of its kind in the Dubuque area.

Sweeney tells the Telegraph Herald (https://bit.ly/1B7iYJT ) that the troop plans to work with the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Dubuque to deliver the cookies. She says it hasn’t yet been determined when or where they’ll be distributed.

Sweeney says the donation marks a “heartwarming” kickoff to this year’s Girl Scout cookie campaign.
