Millions of Girl Scout Cookies Arrive in Connecticut!
March 5, 2012
More than 2 million boxes of Girl Scout Cookies were delivered across Connecticut last weekend.
Hundreds of volunteers and Girl Scouts helped to off-load the cases of cookies from semi-trucks and pallets at 23 locations across the state.
The majority of the cookies will be delivered by Girl Scouts to customers that placed orders in January and the remainder will be sold at cookie booths statewide through the month of March. To find a booth in your area, visit www.gsofct.org.
Girl Scouts will also continue to sell cookies for Cookies for Heroes. This service project allows customers to purchase Girl Scout Cookies to be sent to service men and women around the world. The goal this year is to be able to send over 120,000 boxes of cookies to service women and men at home and overseas. Personalized notes from Girl Scouts will be sent with the cookies. Visit www.cookiesforheroes.com for more information about this program.
Girl Scouts of Connecticut is selling 8 varieties of cookies including: Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Do-si-dos, Trefoils, Dulce De Leche, Thank U Berry Munch, and Savannah Smiles, the new bite-sized lemon-wedge cookie in honor of the 100th Anniversary of Girl Scouts.
The proceeds from Girl Scouts of Connecticut’s cookie program stay in Connecticut and directly benefit all of the Girl Scouts in Connecticut, including the Girl Scout Troop or Group from which the cookies were purchased.
