A group of Annapolis lobbyists has joined the Girl Scouts of Central Maryland in a campaign to feed the hungry during the COVID-19 crisis. Their idea is to include a box of Girl Scout cookies – preferably Thin Mints – in each parcel provided to a family visiting a local food bank in Maryland.
The campaign began when Annapolis attorney and lobbyist Bryson Popham purchased 75 boxes of Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies to be donated to the Anne Arundel Food Bank. But he felt that number was “minuscule when compared to the need,” so Popham reached out to fellow Annapolis lawyer and lobbyist Steve Wise of Schwartz, Metz & Wise, P.A., and challenged him to match his contribution. Wise readily agreed.
