Girl Scouts selling cookies

Girl Scouts sell cookies in this 2017 file photo.

BURIEN — It’s cold and windy and a half-dozen girls are standing outside of a Mary’s Place family homeless shelter trying to stay warm, hoping for some cookie customers.

Their folding table, covered in brightly-colored boxes, hasn’t seen much action so far, but below them, plenty of cars are passing by on a busy thoroughfare through Burien.
