Each Girl Scout cookie purchase helps the next generation of girl entrepreneurs get an important taste of what it takes to be successful -? teamwork, planning, and a positive outlook. The Cookie Sale Program is the largest financial literacy program for Girl Scouts and many alumnae say that their experience selling Girl Scout Cookies was a critical first step on a path to success in their life and career.

As the largest entrepreneurial program for girls in the world, the Girl Scout Cookie Program is powering the next century of girl leaders toward an amazing future.

While stocking up on Thin Mints this weekend, customers can now choose to donate boxes of cookies to a worthy cause.

During the 2018 Cookie Sale, Girl Scouts have collecting donated cookies to give to the military. Customers can make $4 donations that represent a box of cookies that will be given to Soldier?s Angels and Riverbend Troop Support, organizations that send care packages to the brave men and women in our military.

When troops receive these cookies, it serves as a great reminder of home. In 2018, Girl Scouts in our local council have set a goal of collecting 2,018 cases of cookies to donate. As a council, they are less than 400 cases of cookies away from meeting this goal.

The tradition of Girl Scouts selling cookies has been around for more than 100 years. Proceeds stay local and help ensure quality, local programming for girls and support for volunteers.

From offering financial assistance to girls in underserved areas to building a premier summer camp, the Cookie Sale Program has brought many positive initiatives to communities.
