While TEP employees can’t volunteer in person this year, TEP is supporting Girl Scouts’ entrepreneurship as they safely sell cookies to the community and donate to local heroes.
TEP is a longtime contributor to the Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona as a way to promote education and business training. In addition, we’re supporting the Girl Scouts’ expanded efforts to promote diversity, equity and inclusion in our community.
The Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona has made it easy to purchase cookies this year with online links to order for shipping or delivery through Grubhub, as well as locating a booth near you. If you know a Girl Scout, ask for her online sales webpage. Girl Scouts are also dropping off cookies to your door.
New this year, you can also buy cookies to donate to first responders and military members serving overseas through the Cookies for Our Heroes program.
Most years, TEP volunteers help load up boxes during the annual cookie drop to distribute boxed treats for troops. In addition, our employees volunteer as troop leaders, serve on the board and participate in fundraisers, including the “Over the Edge” event in which they rappel down tall buildings.
TEP supports the Girl Scouts’ mission to promote important life skills – money management, people skills, business ethics, decision-making and goal setting.
