Did you know that every box of Girl Scout Cookies is helping girls build important life and leadership skills, as well as financial literacy?
Girl Scouts of Northern Indiana-Michiana, in partnership with Walgreens, will be selling cookies during Girl Scout Cookie STOCK UP SATURDAY, March 9. Visit your local Walgreens store from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and fill your cupboards or freezers for just $3.50 per box.
Available varieties of cookies include: Thin Mints, Shortbread, Peanut Butter Patties, Peanut Butter Sandwiches, Caramel deLites, Thanks-A-Lot, Lemonades, and the new Mango Cremes … a cookie infused with Nutrifusion.
Want to support the 2013 Cookie Program but dietary restrictions are holding you back? Then the 2013 Cookie Share Program is for you. With this program, your donation to the Girl Scouts provides cookies to troops and personnel, both locally and around the globe. Girl Scout Cookies have warmed the hearts of so many servicemen and women, and we salute you in helping us bring smiles to our military.
The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the largest girl-led business in the country and through cookie program activities, girls learn how to plan, build teams, speak up, make decisions, solve problems and manage resources. Because girls are the main beneficiaries of all Girl Scout cookie activities, these skills help girls learn to be leaders in their own lives and in our communities.
“We don’t know of any other youth-oriented activity in which girls manage, and make their own decisions, on how to utilize the money they earnto achieve their troop projects and goals for their troop or individual pathway activities,” says Connie Frederick, GSNI-M Product Pathway manager.
Remember, time is running out to get your Girl Scout Cookies before they disappear for another year. The 2013 Cookie Program only lasts until March 12. If you don’t know a Girl Scout in your area, visit www.gsnim.org to find a Girl Scout Cookie Booth near you.
