Annamarie just a few hundred boxes short of
her goal of selling 5,000 boxes of Girl Scout cookies,
today last day to buy

By DIANNE RUSSELL

With the help of Brian Griep of the Laguna Beach Police Employees Association (LBPEA), who spearheaded a campaign to help Annamarie McIntosh reach her goal, and both LBPEA and the Laguna Beach Firefighters Association making generous donations, Annamarie McIntosh is just a few hundred boxes short of selling 5,000 boxes.

On Saturday, after meeting with Annamarie, President of the Laguna Beach Firefighters Association Crissy Teichmann, said, “The Laguna Beach Firefighters are always up for a challenge. When the Police Association challenged us to match their Girl Scout cookie purchase to help Annamarie meet her goal of selling 5,000 boxes of cookies, we not only matched it, we beat it by buying twice as much.” 

Annamarie’s dad Steve says, “She’s so close. We were busy over the weekend.” 

Her mother Vicki says, “Annamarie has been working hard to sell cookies and getting donations to supply cookies to the troops at Camp Pendleton through Cookie Share.”

 As of yesterday, Brian was still working on getting her to the 5,000 mark.

Today is the last day, since Annamarie has to have her paperwork in tomorrow morning. So if you want to help her reach the goal by buying or donating, call her dad Steve at (949) 315-9209 or email him at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

The Girl Scouts offer many opportunities and experiences for young girls. As a young girl, I was a Brownie and Girl Scout and have a lot of great memories from those experiences. We are proud of Annamarie’s motivation, passion, and dedication to help support many young girls across the country by selling so many boxes of cookies.
