Cookie sales yield experiences for Girl Scouts

Those Thin Mints and Peanut Butter Patties in your pantry may just be cookies to you, but they mean a lot more to the Girl Scouts who sold them. The Girl Scouts Cookie Program officially started on January 18th, though some troops have been able to sell them online for a few weeks already.  The program helps Girl Scouts learn financial literacy skills like running their own businesses, counting money, and goal setting. It also helps the national Girl Scouts organization fund its programming nationwide, with members selling approximately 200 million boxes annually. The money earned locally through the cookie sales stays local, which helps Girl Scout leaders like Jennifer Heidel plan fun activities and service projects with her troop in Kewaunee.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program runs until April 2nd. You can find a link to order cookies here or find your local Girl Scout Troop to purchase directly from them.
