From the carmel delight of Samoas and the shortbread yumminess of Trefoils to the guilty pleasure of Thin Mints and the brand new Savannah Smiles, it’s that time of year! Girl Scouts across the nation will be setting out on their annual cookie sales drive. This is great news for fans of Girls Scout Cookies, who have been dreaming of Tagalongs and Do-Si-Dos.
The Girls Scout Cookie Program is the largest girl-led program in the country, bringing in $700 million, but it’s the benefits to the girls that are invaluable. Each Girl Scout troop sets cookie goals that help fund their projects and activities for the year. By purchasing cookies, you are contributing to bright futures in your communities.
Not only does the Girl Scout Cookie Program generate funds that support the Girl Scouts of the USA, but the cookie program also teaches the girls decision making, business ethics, money management, people skills, and goal setting.
Keep your eyes out for the Girl Scouts and get you hands on those cookies! You can find the closest cookie booth by heading over to GirlScoutCookies.org and entering you zip code in the cookie finder.
