It’s Girl Scout Cookie Season
Rancho Santa Fe Girl Scout Roni Nelson of Troop 1095 is gladly helping residents stock up on America’s iconic confection – Girl Scout cookies!
Roni sold 5,104 boxes in 2014, making her the top seller in the county for years in a row. Roni used a portion of her cookie proceeds to support Honor Flight San Diego, a local nonprofit. She looks forward to continuing to make the world a better place with this year’s earnings. Roni also plans to set aside funds for a trip to Peru hosted by Girl Scouts’ Destinations global travel program. Cookie offerings include two brand new varieties – Rah-Rah Raisins and gluten-free Toffee-tastics – and returning favorites Thin Mints, Samoas, Do-si-dos, Trefoils and Tagalongs.
All proceeds from each $5 box stay local to help fund Girl Scouting activities and programs. Through the Girl Scout Cookie Program, future business leaders like Roni gain key skills like goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. They also help serve the military by inviting customers to donate cookies to Operation Thin Mint. For details visit the Girl Scouts San Diego website www.sdgirlscouts.org.
