Girl Scout Cookie Booth sales begin tomorrow

What can a cookie do? A Girl Scout Cookie can help girls dream more. Have more opportunities. Give more to their communities and do more than they ever thought possible. There’s more to Girl Scout Cookies.
Starting on Friday, February 22, 2013, girls will set up cookie booths at local stores in their communities as part of the largest financial literacy program of the year for Girl Scouts. Cookie Booth sales will be on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays until March 17, 2013.
Compared to this time last year, the Girl Scout Cookie Program sales are down and the local council is asking people to support girls and buy cookies.  
Jenny Jones, Director of Marketing and Communications for Girl Scouts Heart of the South said, “The qualities that girls learn through the Cookie Program help them throughout life and they become more resourceful and productive citizens who contribute to their communities.”
Jones also stated, “Many Girl Scout Troops use their cookie proceeds to do service projects for their local schools, churches and communities.  Everyone benefits when children learn to give back at a young age.”
People can find Girl Scout Cookies in their community by logging on to www.girlscoutcookies.org or downloading the free app, Cookie Locator, and entering their zip code for the dates and locations of the nearest cookie booths.
Girl Scouts will be selling 8 varieties of cookies: Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Trefoils, Do-Si-Dos, Dulce de leche, Thank You Berry Munch and Savannah Smiles. A box of Girl Scout Cookies is $3.50.
The Girl Scout Cookie Program has helped make Girl Scouting the premier leadership development experience for girls. Through the Girl Scout Cookie Program, girls develop five essential skills, important ingredients in the Girl Scout Leadership Experience: goal setting, decision-making, money management, people skills and business ethics.
