Signs of Spring: Girl Scout Cookie Booths in Bloom at Local Businesses


Cookie-Booths-Header

Just like daffodils, Girl Scout Cookie® booths will soon be popping up throughout western Ohio. Starting Friday, March 2, Cookie Pros will set up shop at local businesses, ready to entice your sweet tooth with creative table displays, troop goal posters, cookie costumes, and cases of delicious Girl Scout Cookies.

Satisfy that cookie craving while you still can! They're only available through the March 25. 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.

This year’s eight cookie varieties include Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Trefoils, Do-Si-Dos, Savannah Smiles, gluten free Toffee-Tastics, and Girl Scout S’mores. Girl Scout Cookies are $4 per box, except the gluten-free Toffee-tastics and Girl Scout S’mores cookie varieties which are $5.

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 entrepreneur 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. "These G.I.R.L.s (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, and Leader)TM are building entrepreneurial and business skills that are imperative for leadership and future success. Plus, they're doing amazing things made possible by each and every cookie sale, from helping at animal shelters and feeding the homeless to raising awareness about bullying—opportunities that instill a lifelong sense of civic responsibility and create leaders!”

One hundred percent of the net revenue raised through Girl Scout Cookie sales in western Ohio 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.

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.
