Our friendly neighborhood Girl Scouts are gladly helping residents stock up on America’s iconic confection – Girl Scout cookies! Offerings include brand new varieties such as the Girl Scouts S’mores and returning favorites Thin Mints, Samoas, Do-si-dos, Trefoils, and Tagalongs.

All proceeds from each $5 box stay local to help fund Girl Scout activities and programs. For example, local troops funded an overnight adventure at the Living Coast Discovery Center where they learned about protecting endangered species and the environment. Under the guidance of troop leaders, the girls also used cookie earnings for community service projects.

Through the Girl Scout Cookie Program, girls 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 more information visit www.sdgirlscouts.org.
