Tagalongs. Thin Mints. Samoas. Everyone knows what we’re talking about. But are you aware that Girl Scout Cookies and More helps girls build financial responsibility and entrepreneurial skills? That’s not all. Our beloved cookie program also helps girls acquire essential life skills including goal setting, decision-making, money management, people skills and business ethics. It’s a recipe for fun-filled success!
In addition, girls can participate in the Fall Product Program, offering magazines, photo books, and seasonal nuts and candies. Complete resources and cookie updates can be found here for girls and parents to get started today.**
Help support the largest girl-led business in the world by satisfying your sweet tooth! Enjoy your favorite cookies today while teaching girls 5 essential skills they’ll use to be successful with every business venture they are a part of.
All of the proceeds—every penny—from the Girl Scout Cookie Program are used to benefit girls within our local council. Some earnings go directly to troops for girls to decide the best way to use it—paying for special events or funding community service projects. By supporting the Cookie Program, you are supporting programs for Girl Scouts throughout our community.
The Cookie Program is an integral component of being a Girl Scout that helps girls build financial and life skills and helps fund many aspects of Girl Scouting. Funds raised:
A portion of the cookie proceeds girls earn also goes back into their troops to cover costs associated with special activities and community service projects.
Committed to giving back to our community, Girl Scouts, Hornets’ Nest Council has always had a strong cookie donation program. In the past, we have focused on military efforts (Cookies for the Troops), but in honor of the 100th Anniversary of Girl Scouts Selling Cookies, we are expanding our efforts to include a local focus while maintaining support of USO and military charities. Support Cookies for a Cause today!
