Girl Scout Cookies Arrive in CT


March 10, 2010

Millions of Girl Scout Cookies Arrive in Connecticut


More than 2 million boxes of Girl Scout Cookies were delivered to over 3,000 Girl Scout Troops across Connecticut last weekend. 

Hundreds of volunteers and Girl Scouts helped to off-load the cases of cookies from semi-trucks and pallets at more than 20 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 in front of grocery stores and shops at cookie booths statewide, through the month of March. To find a booth in your area, visit www.gsofct.org and click on the "Find a Cookie Booth" button.

Girl Scouts will also continue to sell cookies for their Gift of Caring Service Project. The Cookies for Heroes service project allows customers to purchase Girl Scout Cookies to be sent to our service men and women around the world. The goal this year is to send 100,000 boxes of cookies to our troops overseas and at home. Personalized notes from Girl Scouts will be sent with the cookies. The public is encouraged to visit www.CookieVote.com to vote for their favorite Girl Scout cookie and submit their own inspirational notes for our many service men and women. These notes will also be included with the Girl Scout Cookies being sent through the Cookies for Heroes program.

Girl Scout cookie favorites, Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Do-si-dos, Trefoils, Lemon Chalet, and a bite-size Dulce De Leche, will be available at the booth sales along with this year's new cookie treat called Thank U Berry Munch. The new cookie features real, premium cranberries with sweet, creamy white fudge chips.

The annual Girl Scout Cookie Program is one of the most unique program activities for Girl Scouts. It's a hands-on leadership and financial literacy program that begins with imagination and inspiration. At the beginning of the program, girls ask themselves, "What can we do for fun and learning with our cookie proceeds?" and "What can we do with our cookie proceeds to help others?" Some Girl Scouts in Connecticut used their cookie proceeds from last year to cook dinner for a local homeless shelter, adopt military troops overseas, plant a community garden, and donate cookies to a local Veteran's hospital. Whatever goals the girls choose to pursue this year, they will also be building their leadership skills as they work as a team, budget and manage their money, and cultivate a strong sense of business ethic, all while providing customers with a tasty treat!
      
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. Girl Scout supporters who purchase a box of cookies are investing in their communities as well as tomorrow's leaders.
