Girl Scouts Celebrate Launch of the First Enterprise as Cookie Booths Open


Cookie Booth

Girl Scout Cookie booths will soon be popping up at local businesses throughout Cincinnati. Starting Friday, March 3, Cookie Entrepreneurs will set up shop, ready to entice your sweet tooth with creative table displays, troop goal posters, cookie costumes, and cases of delicious Girl Scout Cookies.

If there’s anything that can make cracking open a box of fresh Girl Scout Cookies even better, it's knowing the benefits girls’ cookie earnings bring to the surrounding community. During Girl Scout Cookie season, each amazing young #cookieboss is not only selling delicious cookies, she’s also building essential life skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics—the “5 Skills” of the cookie program. And the more cookies girls sell, the more earnings they have to invest in community projects that drive positive change and personal enrichment experiences, such as travel opportunities.
 
"The Girl Scout Cookie Program is about more than just cookies," said Roni Luckenbill, chief executive officer of Girl Scouts of Western Ohio. "It teaches girls integral business skills and instills a lifelong sense of civic responsibility that creates leaders. At Girl Scouts of Western Ohio, so many amazing girls within our ranks are doing positive, impactful things with their cookie earnings. Erinn published a self-help book to help girls overcome self-esteem challenges, and Ellie created the first ever, nationally recognized Girl Scout hiking trail. With our celebration of the 100th year of Girl Scouts selling cookies, we’re excited to spotlight these accomplished young women and support their efforts to meet their cookie-selling goals for the year!”

One hundred percent of the net revenue raised through Girl Scout Cookie® sales in the Cincinnati area stays with Girl Scouts of Western Ohio and its troops. As a result, customers who purchase Girl Scout Cookies are not only getting a delicious treat—they’re making an important investment in their communities and powering thousands of fun and impactful experiences for girls.

Satisfy that cookie craving while you still can! They're only available through the March 26. Visit gswo.org/findcookies to find a booth sale in your community, or download the Girl Scout Cookie Locator App for Apple and Android devices to search for booths nearest you.

Have food allergies, counting calories, or not a cookie eater? Consider donating boxes to Operation Cookie. You’ll double your giving efforts by supporting Girl Scouts, who keep their earnings, and by sending a taste of home to military personnel serving overseas.
 
Purchase five boxes of cookies and receive a coupon to participate in a contest to win five free cases of Girl Scout Cookies. Entries must be submitted online no later than 5:00 p.m. EST on Sunday, April 2, 2017, and five winners will be announced on April 7, 2017.
