Girl Scouts announce new partnerships

| January 19, 2016

COLUMBUS – Girl Scouts of Ohio’s Heartland Council is excited to announce their new sponsors for the 2016 Girl Scout Cookie Program: Huntington Bank and American Dairy Association Mideast.

Financial support from both sponsors will support Girl Scout financial literacy programs throughout the 30 counties they serve. Their financial literacy programs, including the annual Girl Scout Cookie Program, provide girls with the opportunity to learn valuable life skills to prepare them for the future. These skills include goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. The 2016 Girl Scout Cookie Program runs through March 20.

Celebrating its 150th anniversary in 2016, Columbus-based Huntington is a full-service banking provider operating in six states, including Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Indiana, West Virginia, and Kentucky. A Silver Dollar partner, Huntington is dedicated to partnering with local organizations to make a difference in the community.

“Girl Scout Cookie sales are a time-honored tradition to teach young women entrepreneurial principles,” said Jim Kunk, Huntington’s Central Ohio region president. “Huntington shares the passion for youth in our communities to gain business know-how, which is why we’re supporting the return of this valuable annual resource to foster financial literacy.”

The American Dairy Association Mideast, representing Ohio and West Virginia dairy farm families, provides science-based dairy nutrition information to, and in collaboration with, a variety of stakeholders committed to fostering a healthier society. ADA Mideast is a Copper Coins partner.

“On behalf of Ohio’s dairy farmers, the American Dairy Association Mideast is pleased to be a Copper Coins partner with the Girl Scouts of Ohio’s Heartland to support their 2016 cookie program, “ said Scott Higgins, Chief Executive Officer for the American Dairy Association Mideast. “After all, nothing goes together better than milk and cookies.”

“We are excited to partner with these two locally based organizations for our 2016 Girl Scout Cookie Program,” said Tammy Wharton, Chief Executive Officer, Girl Scouts of Ohio’s Heartland Council. “Because of their generous support, we are able to make a positive difference in the lives of local girls.”
