Local residents have a last chance to purchase their favorite Girl Scout cookies this March. Area Girl Scouts will be selling cookies at booths outside of local businesses through March 24. Cookie Booth season marks the final couple weeks of the Girl Scout Cookie Program, an annual financial literacy and fundraising program that helps girls earn profits that they can use to fund Girl Scout activities. The remainder of the cookie profits goes to the local Girl Scout Council to cover the cost of leadership programs and services for girls.
The Girl Scout Cookie Program is structured to teach girls five key skills: decision making, goal setting, money management, people skills and business ethics. There are eight cookie varieties offered this year, including the all-new tropical treat, Mango Crèmes.
