Girl Scout Cookie Program, a “learning by earning” opportunity for girls continues through March 23
Buying Girl Scout Cookies is more than just handing over money for a delicious treat. It’s about the skills a girl gains from interacting directly with customers. It’s about the experience of running her own cookie business and working with others.
After initial orders, Girl Scouts will sell cookies at booths outside of local storefronts until March 23. Cookies are $4 per box. More information is at www.girlscoutsla.org.
From its earliest beginnings in 1917 to its current popularity, the Girl Scout Cookie Program has helped girls have fun, develop valuable life skills, and make their communities a better place. Cookie earnings help pay for the leadership activities and field trips Girl Scouts do all year long. Plus, the cookie program benefits more than just the girls selling them. With their earnings, Girl Scouts fund important community projects at the local level. When you buy Girl Scout Cookies in your neighborhood, you are keeping your dollars in the community.
