It’s Girl Scout Cookie time
Thin Mints, Samoas, Toffee-tastics and more — they’re almost here! The Girl Scout cookie season kicks off in January, with booth sales starting Feb. 15.
Whether changing laws on child marriage, improving local parks, helping students improve their SAT scores, or addressing the opioid crisis, Girl Scouts are doing amazing things made possible by each and every cookie sale.
“Most of the things I’ve done with Girl Scouts, I’d probably never get to do out of (Girl Scouts),” said Kacilynn Hernandez-Feliciano of Newton, a Cadette Girl Scout.
Last year, in New Hampshire and Vermont, 8,200 Girl Scout Troops earned $972,000 in cookie proceeds, which were used to support troop activities and often reinvested into local community Take Action projects.
This year, Girl Scouts will sell eight flavors of cookies at $5 per package. Girls will also sell cookies through the Digital Cookie® platform, an innovative and educational web-based addition to the cookie program that helps girls run and manage their Girl Scout Cookie businesses online.
