After an Indiana Girl Scout was shot in the line of duty earlier this month, the surrounding community has shown their support by placing an overwhelming number of cookie orders under her name.

Sinai Miller, 9, was shot in the leg on the afternoon of Feb. 3 when she left her apartment to meet with other girls in her troop to start delivering cookies.

“We have been overwhelmed with the outpouring of community support following this senseless act,” Girl Scouts of Central Indiana CEO Deborah Hearn Smith told the Indy Star. Sinai will now be a top seller.

But the generosity hasn’t ended there. Because so many orders came in under Sinai’s name, dozens of people have volunteered to help the troop deliver the cookies.

“The challenge then became how to get those cookies delivered,” Smith said. “[Monday] evening, dozens of volunteers from the four Amazon fulfillment centers in the Indianapolis-area donated their time and expertise to help the troop sort, pack and ship cookie orders from the company’s Whitestown fulfillment center.”

There have been no arrests related to the shooting.
