The annual Girl Scout Cookie Sale is coming to a close March 26, so pick up your favorites while you still can. Until then, cookies will be sold at cookie booths outside of grocery stores and other retail venues. You can also visit the Cookie Finder at www.girlscoutcookies.org to locate a cookie booth in your area.
Girl Scout Cookies come in eight varieties, including Thin Mints, Peanut Butter Patties, Peanut Butter Sandwiches, Shortbread, Thanks-A-Lot, Caramel deLites, Lemonades and the newest flavor S’mores. All varieties of Girl Scout Cookies are $4. Customers looking to purchase gluten free Trios are encouraged to ask Girl Scouts about this option. They are $5.
When customers purchase Girl Scout Cookies they are helping girls learn 5 Skills – decision making, goal setting, money management, business ethics and people skills, and giving girls the ability to power new, unique and amazing experiences.
Every penny, after paying the baker, stays with the local council and is reinvested into girl programming and activities for girls. Girls use their portion of proceeds earned to attend summer camp, attend badge workshops and complete service projects to better their communities and more.
