Starting Friday, February 15, thousands of eastern Missouri Girl Scout troops will begin hosting Girl Scout Cookie booths. Cookie connoisseurs, who haven’t gotten their fill of Thin Mints®, Tagalongs ® and Samoas®, can locate Girl Scout Cookie booths at local grocery, hardware and wellness stores by visiting girlscoutsem.org/cookielocator.
By participating in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, G.I.R.L.s (Go-getters, Innovators, Risk-takers, Leaders) TM are flexing their entrepreneurial spirits and learning essential skills that will prepare them for a lifetime of leadership, adventure and success. As civic engagement is a huge part of being a Girl Scout, the Cookie Program is another opportunity for girls to give back to their communities. Through Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri’s community service initiative, “Troop to Troop,” charitable customers can donate $4 to provide one package of cookies to members of the United States armed services.
Last year, more than 91,000 packages of Girl Scout Cookies were gifted to the USO of Missouri. This year, local area Girl Scouts are hopeful for community support to reach their goal of 100,000 cookie packages to the USO of Missouri. With five weeks left of the Girl Scout Cookie Program, 83,000 cookie packages have already been donated! By purchasing cookies for donation, community supporters are ensuring the country’s brave military men and women have an iconic taste of home.
The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the largest girl-led enterprise in the country and eastern Missouri customers can help facilitate amazing experiences for girls through their cookie purchases. All of the net revenue from the cookie sales—100 percent of it—stays in the area so the girls can benefit from innovative programming and one-of-a-kind adventures.
Cookie booths are available beginning Friday, February 15 and ends Sunday, March 10
Girl Scout Cookie booths will be available at more than 3,900 locations across eastern Missouri including Dierbergs, Dunkin, Kaldi’s Coffee, Lowes, Schnucks, Walgreens and the Magic House.
