Girl Scout Cookies

It’s Girl Scout Cookie Time!

BEDFORD —Local Girl Scouts are now taking orders for Girl Scout Cookies, to be delivered in mid-February. Girl Scout Cookies are great cookies for a great cause. There are six varieties which sell for $4.00 a box; all of the proceeds support local Girl Scouts and programs.

Girl Scout Cookies are kosher foods and there are zero grams of trans fat per serving.

This annual program is the leading financial literacy program for girls in the U.S., teaching them five essential skills they’ll use for the rest of their lives: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. Girls can earn money to pay their way to Girl Scout camp and other fun and exciting opportunities.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program enables girls to attend camp, have endless enjoyable learning opportunities (Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains offers more than 100 programs for girls) and learn valuable leadership skills.

Eighty-two percent of successful businesswomen in the U.S. believe the Girl Scout Cookie program contributed to their success!

Don’t know a Girl Scout but want cookies? Call the Cookie Hotline: 888-474-9686 ext. 4201, and leave a message including the name of your town, and someone will get back to you.

Girl Scout Cookies will be delivered in the middle of February. At this time, cookie booth sales will begin and run through early March. You can use the Girl Scout Cookie Locator app http://littlebrowniebakers.com/cookies/find-girl-scout-cookies-on-your-mobile-phone/ to find a booth sale near you.

For more information, call 888-474-9686, or visit www.girlscoutsgwm.org. Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains serves more than 12,300 girls across New Hampshire and Vermont, thanks to support from 5,000 trained and dedicated volunteers.
