Cookie Volunteers

With your help, girls can make their dreams come true with Girl Scout Cookies. They’ll learn the 5 Skills (goal-setting, decision-making, money management, people skills, business ethics) for life while having a lot of fun along the way. We have everything you need to make your Cookie Season quick, easy, and fulfilling. Looking for ideas and inspiration? You’ve come to the right place! 

Congratulations to the Troops that won the Bucs Game Day Raffle! Troops 60709, 61234, 60599, 30292, 60650, and 60794 will represent GSWCF by hosting cookie booths at an upcomming Tampa Bay Buccaneers home game.
