On Friday, Feb. 16, Girl Scouts throughout eastern Missouri will begin hosting Girl Scout Cookie booths. Booths will be set up at grocery stores, hardware stores, retail outlets and many other locations across the region. Thin Mints®, Samoas® and Tagalongs® will be available in addition to the Girl Scout S’mores™ and gluten-free Toffee Tastic®. Customers interested in finding their nearest Girl Scout Cookie Booth can go to GirlScoutsEM.org/cookies or download the Girl Scout Cookie Locator app from Google Play or the App store.
Community service plays a huge role in Girl Scouting and is evident in practically every activity girls undertake—including the iconic Girl Scout Cookie program. 2018 marks the fifth anniversary of Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri’s “Troop to Troop” program, which is a partnership with the USO of Missouri. Through “Troop to Troop,” Girl Scout Cookie customers can purchase packages of Girl Scout Cookies for members of the United States armed services. This program provides military service personnel a “taste of home,” and provides an avenue for Girl Scouts and their charitable customers to thank them for their service.
This year, eastern Missouri Girl Scouts are working toward donating 100,000 packages of Girl Scout Cookies to the USO of Missouri. Currently, Girl Scouts and their charitable customers have gifted more than 81,000 packages.
The Girl Scout Cookie program is the largest girl-led enterprise in the country and eastern Missouri customers help facilitate amazing experiences for girls through their cookie purchases—experiences that prepare Girl Scouts to practice a lifetime of leadership. Since 100 percent of the money stays local, customers not only support girls’ success but the success of the eastern Missouri community, too. By taking part in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, Girl Scouts from eastern Missouri power important community service programs like “Troop to Troop.”
