There was a total of 82 girls who sold more than 1,200 boxes of cookies.
In addition, a total of 53,532 packages of cookies were donated to our military men and women through the Girl of Caring program.
Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who participated and supported the 2016 Girl Scout Cookie Program! We'll see you again in 2017!
When you buy a box of delicious Girl Scout Cookies, you help power
new, unique, and amazing experiences for the awesome girls in your
community who sell these purpose-filled treats—SWEET!
Will she help the local animal shelter across town or plant a community garden for friends and neighbors? Cross the country to see the Grand Canyon, or cross an ocean to fly through the rainforest on a zip line? It’s up to her and her troop—they own their adventure!
That’s the thing. When girls participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, they get more than life-changing experiences and adventure. They also develop essential life skills—goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics—all while soaring in confidence and practicing leadership the Girl Scout way to lift one another up and change the world, together.
What an experience! That’s why we always focus on the interaction between cookie boss and cookie fan, and not cookie parent and cookie fan—this is SO important! Enjoy your favorite cookies even more knowing you helped her do and learn amazing things.
