Girl Scout Cookie Program Kicks Off January 7, Promotes Centennial

Some say it’s just a cookie. What can a cookie do? A Girl Scout Cookie can do a lot. It could help send a city kid to camp. It could help pay for a fresh change of clothes for a victim of a wildfire who lost everything and calls a local shelter home.  It could cheer up a soldier far from home. When you buy Girl Scout cookies, you help girls do great things in their communities and encourage them to change the world!

January 7 marks the start of the Cookie Program for Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council (GSSJC). The Girl Scouts Cookie program is the largest girl-led business in the country and generates over $700 million for girls and communities nationwide. With every season of Girl Scout cookies, another generation of girls learns about goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics. As women, they’ll need these skills, whether they goal is to start a business or a family.

Girl Scout Cookies are available in eight varieties:  Thin Mints, Peanut Butter Patties, Peanut Butter Sandwiches, Shortbread, Thanks-A-Lot, Caramel deLites, Lemonades, and Shout Outs. All varieties of Girl Scout Cookies are zero trans fat per serving and the price for a box of cookies is only $4.00.

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouts, the Shortbread package has changed. The box of the cookie that started it all features Girl Scouts from GSSJC.

From February 17 through March 25, Girl Scout Cookies will be sold at cookie booths outside of grocery stores and other retail venues. The Girl Scout Cookie Sale ends March 25.

When all of the cookies have been consumed, remember, the box is not empty.  Each box sold helps to create thousands of happy memories and incredible achievements that the cookie program has made possible.  Every box of Girl Scout Cookies resonates with promise and possibility. Your support of Girl Scouting through purchasing Girl Scout Cookies helps make that promise and those possibilities into realities for girls.
