Are you ready to enjoy some delicious Thin Mints? Wait – you say Caramel deLites and Peanut Butter Patties are your favorites? Whatever your favorite flavor may be, you know our girls have them and they will be ready for pre-order beginning this Friday, January 10.
The best part about Girl Scout Cookie sales is the money goes towards each of the girls own leadership opportunities and experiences. The Girl Scout Cookie Program® teaches girls essential skills like money management, public speaking, and decision making, which set them up for a lifetime of success. In fact, nine in 10 Girl Scouts say the cookie program has built their entrepreneurship skills and their interest in pursuing entrepreneurship as a career path—so every cookie purchase is an investment in the world-changing business leaders of tomorrow.
“Everyone loves Girl Scout Cookies—but the program is about so much more than cookies,” said Girl Scouts Louisiana East CEO Rebecca Pennington. “Girls learn about entrepreneurship as they run their own cookie businesses. The important business and financial literacy skills girls learn through the program are proven to build their leadership skills and position them for success in the future. When you purchase cookies you are helping girls power their Girl Scout experience and supporting female entrepreneurs.”
Girl Scout Cookies can only be purchased from a registered Girl Scout. To find Girl Scouts selling cookies near you, visit www.girlscoutcookies.org.
Don’t forget Girl Scout Cookies are only available for a limited time each year. Girl Scouts Louisiana East’s cookie season will end March 15, so be sure to scoop them up when you see them!
