Girl Financial Assistance Request
Financial assistance is provided thanks to the donations of Girl Scouts, Troops, and Service Units in our area. Many thanks to these generous Girl Scouts!

Buzz Bucks (formerly known as Cookie Dough or Nut Bucks) are earned by many Girl Scouts through the Treats & Reads or Cookie Sale programs. If your Girl Scout has Buzz Bucks, they can be used for membership, in the Council store for uniform components, badges, and books, and on any program offered by Girl Scouts, Hornets' Nest Council (on our calendar at https://www.hngirlscouts.org/en/events/event-calendar.html).
