"As she eagerly watched car after car pour into the Angel Stadium parking lot, 14-year-old Hailey Heren prepared to take cookie orders, hundreds of boxes at her side.
Heading into her 10th year as a Girl Scout, the Anaheim native was facing the most challenging cookie season yet – social distancing requirements altering how she had to conduct her sales.
But with the help of innovative drive-thru events, contactless deliveries and lots of hand sanitizer, Heren sold 13,093 boxes of Girl Scout cookies – crowning her Orange County’s top seller for 2021.
Heren usually averages 4,000 to 5,000 boxes a year, she said. This year, she sold 1,000 in a day at the Angel Stadium “mega” drive-thru, which was held in March by five local troops to safely sell cookies during the pandemic."
