It's Girl Scout Cookie Time!
January 3, 2012
Girl Scouts throughout Connecticut are taking orders beginning January 7th, 2012 for everyone’s favorite cookies!
What can a cookie do? More than you see! The Girl Scout Cookie Program is a fun, hands-on way for girls to gain five important skills that they can apply in their everyday life. Girls learn about goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. Over the course of a Girl Scout’s life, she’ll apply these skills in her day-to day activities, helping to make the world a better place.
The proceeds from Girl Scouts of Connecticut’s cookie program stay in Connecticut and directly benefit all of the Girl Scouts in Connecticut, including the Girl Scout troop or group from which the cookies were purchased. Girl Scout supporters who purchase a box of cookies are investing in girl-led and girl-centered programming that helps girls discover their personal best; connect with others to build healthy relationships; and take action in their communities to make the world a better place. They are investing in a future generation of strong, confident women who can change the world!
The popular Cookies for Heroes program is back this year. Last year, over 120,000 boxes were sent to our service women and men, and this year the goal is even higher! The Cookies for Heroes service project allows customers to purchase Girl Scout Cookies from their local Girl Scout, and Girl Scouts of Connecticut, along with community partners, will deliver the cookies to service women and men overseas and at home.
Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Do-si-dos, Trefoils, Dulce De Leche, and Thank U Berry Munch will all be available. A new flavor is being introduced this year called Savannah Smiles, bite-sized lemon-wedge cookies dusted in powdered sugar and bursting with zesty lemon flavor. These cookies celebrate the birthplace of Juliette Gordon Low, the founder of Girl Scouts, and are a part of the 100th Anniversary of Girl Scouts.
