The sale begins with girls taking orders from families, friends and neighbors at their homes and offices. A cookie locator app can be downloaded for the iPhone and Android devices. For those who miss out on the in-person sales, they can still find their favorite cookies being sold at booth sales beginning Friday, January 31, where troops will set up in front of local businesses and shopping centers across the area. The sale ends on Sunday, March 2.
Since 1917, the Girl Scout cookie activity has been an annual event that has helped girls develop important leadership skills, including goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics, which they will use throughout their lives. The entire troop sets a goal and follows a plan leading toward that goal. Girl Scout troops use funds from the cookie activity to fund service projects in their communities or to plan for an exciting trip. Many successful businesswomen have credited their achievements to the Girl Scout cookie program.
