Girl Scout Cookie Program Starts January 6, 2018
WHEN: Starting Jan. 6, Girl Scouts will be going door-to-door taking orders for cookies. Cookie delivery begins Feb. 16 and booth sales begin Feb. 18. The cookie program ends March 25.
COOKIES: Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast is excited for the return of Girl Scout S’mores–a crunchy graham sandwich cookie with a creamy chocolate and marshmallowy filling. Seven additional varieties of cookies will also be offered this year: Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Trefoils, Do-Si-Dos, Savannah Smiles and Toffee-tastics (gluten free).
PRICES: Locally, Girl Scout cookies are $4 per box. Toffee-tastics, a gluten-free product, and Girl Scout S’mores, made with specialty ingredients will be $5 per box. All proceeds stay in southeastern Virginia and northeastern North Carolina to benefit local Girl Scouts.
DETAILS: The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the nation’s leading financial literacy and entrepreneurial program for girls. Buying Girl Scout Cookies is about more than just handing over money for a box of cookies. It’s about the skills a girl gains from interacting directly with customers. It’s about the experience of running her own cookie business and working with others. Selling cookies teaches goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics—aspects essential to leadership, success and life.
