CINCINNATI -- As Girl Scout cookie season winds down, a lucky troop out of Fairfield just snagged a huge order of Thin Mints from Nation Kitchen and Bar in Pendleton.
More than 20 local troops submitted short videos explaining how they would make the world a better place, but an idea put forth by the fourth-graders of Troop No. 45960 from Sacred Heart School won over the Nation staff's hearts.
With money from the 250-box order of Thin Mints, the girls will install small lockers in the school's bathrooms to hold feminine products. School policy prohibits them from carrying bags and their uniforms lack pockets, which has led girls to sneak around and feel embarrassed when curious boys ask questions about their periods.
"Our project may not change the entire world, but it will make a world of a difference to a girl," a tiny, bespectacled girl explains in their video submission.
Nation will also donate $1 from every burger of the month purchased in April to the Fairfield troop. The restaurant is located at 1200 Broadway St.
Even though these particular girls won the grand prize, Nation staff said they were so touched by all the girls' sincerity that they're buying boxes of Thin Mints from every troop that submitted a video.
"Being a woman and a former Girl Scout it is such an honoring experience to kind of be a part of it still and to really help them be an entrepreneur and be a leading lady in our world right now," Executive Chef Kayla Robison told WCPO.
