FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Attention Cookie Lovers: Girl Scouts of Connecticut
In addition, Connecticut Girl Scouts are once again supporting our military personnel with their Gift of Caring program. Through the Gift of Caring program, cookies may be purchased for women and men serving our country, along with other local charities of the troops' choosing. Last year, Girl Scouts of Connecticut delivered over 80,000 boxes of cookies to our military personnel around the world.
The cookie program depends on the public's support for its success. Cookies will only be available for purchase from now through March.
The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the nation's foremost entrepreneurial learning experience for girls. It is a unique and valuable way for girls to learn the power of goal-setting, develop self confidence and learn business skills. Proceeds from the cookie program will benefit all Connecticut Girl Scouts. A percentage of sales go directly to the Girl Scout troop. Girls work with their leaders to determine how the troop will use the troop proceeds. Many troops will use their proceeds to help fund their community service projects.
For more information on how you can purchase Girl Scout cookies, please call 1-800-882-5561 or visit www.gsofct.org. To review your favorite Sweet Showdown dessert or to find a participating restaurant near you, visit www.CookieVote.com.
