Girl Scout Cookie time

GREENVILLE – What can a girl do? A world of good! It’s Girl Scout cookie time and girls can’t wait to show you how they run their own cookie business. The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the largest girl-run business in the world and it empowers girls with the strength, abilities and drive they’ll need to become accomplished women who benefit themselves, their family and the world.

By participating in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, girls develop life-long skills that increase their self-confidence and add new dimensions to their lives. Through the cookie program, girls are presented opportunities to learn goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics. Additionally, girls help earn their own way for activities and service projects they choose to do for the year. All Girls Scout Program proceeds stay in the community.

On Jan. 10, girls began taking Girl Scout cookie orders. Girls Scouts of Western Ohio will be offering customers a premium selection of the best-selling Girl Scout cookies. A total of six Girl Scout cookies are offered: Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Trefoils, Do-Si-Dos and Savannah Smiles.

Roni Luckenbill, Girls Scouts of Western Ohio CEO, states, “With every season of Girl Scout cookies, another generation of girls learn to set goals, make a plan and manage money. As women, they’ll need to know these things whether their goal is to start a business, a family, or both. No university has produced as many female business owners as has the Girl Scout Cookie Program.”

Girls Scout cookies are made by Little Brownie Bakers and cookies are selling for $4 a box. In addition, there’s still time to be a Girl Scout this year. Girls wishing to join are welcome and can also participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program. For information about joining, visit www.girlscoutsofwesternohio.org.
