The Girl Scout Cookie Program is underway.
Traditional customer favorites like Thin Mints and Samoas are back, plus a new cookie to celebrate Girl Scouts’ 100th Anniversary. “Savannah Smiles” lemon wedge cookies are filled with cool, crisp bursts of lemon chips. The cookies are named after Savannah, Georgia, because the very first troop met there in 1912.
Through the Girl Scout Cookie Program, girls tap their inner CEO to run a business and make important decisions. They learn the power of hard work, develop people skills, manage money, and establish business ethics.
Members of the local Girl Scout Council of the Southern Appalachians are taking cookie orders through January 23. Each box is $3.50. Cookies order deliveries begin February 13. Booth sales in front of local businesses are February 17 through March 11.
All proceeds stay within the council. Some earnings go directly to troops for girls to decide how to use – from paying for special events to funding community service projects.
To find a Girl Scout selling cookies in your area, call 1-800-474-1912.
A girl never forgets the accomplishment of selling cookies, and she never forgets the customers who help her grow strong.
