Girl Scouts are known for their outstanding character and unwavering resolve to make the world a better place. Lauren Lennon, a local 6-year-old Girl Scout, recently gave away more than $324 worth of Girl Scout cookies to Raleigh’s homeless community at the Judy D. Zelnak Center of Hope. Lauren, who had lost a front tooth, asked the tooth fairy for $100 so she could purchase the cookies for less fortunate individuals. The tooth fairy graciously complied, and social media users who learned of Lauren’s intention contributed $200 so she could buy additional cookie boxes. Lauren and her mother Bridget distributed the cookies on March 27, which put many smiles on the faces of those in need. Learn more at
