Girl Scout cookie season starts

Girl Scouts throughout Connecticut are taking cookie orders.

For the first time since 1999, all boxes of Girl Scout Cookies have a new look and a new purpose — to show customers the five skills girls learn through the Cookie Program. These five skills are goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. The Cookie Program is a large part of the Girl Scout experience.

Proceeds from Girl Scouts of Connecticut’s Cookie Program stay in Connecticut and directly benefit all of the Girl Scouts in the state, including the Girl Scout troop or group from which the cookies were purchased. Girl Scouts use the cookie proceeds for many different activities. Some use the money to help out local animal shelters and support emergency personnel during times of hurricanes and nor’easters, others fund troop activities such as camping trips and overnights, and others use their money to travel to places around New England and the country.

Girl Scout supporters who purchase a box of cookies are investing in girl-led and girl-centered programming that helps girls discover their personal best, connect with others to build healthy relationships, and take action in their communities to make the world a better place, according to the Girl Scouts of Connecticut.

The Cookies for Heroes program is back. Last year, over 125,000 boxes were sent to our service women and men. The Cookies for Heroes service project allows customers to purchase Girl Scout Cookies from their local Girl Scout, and Girl Scouts of Connecticut, along with community partners, will ship the cookies to service women and men overseas and at home.

Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Do-si-dos, Trefoils, Dulce De Leche, Thank U Berry Munch and Savannah Smiles will all be available this year.

Girl Scout cookie fans who do not know a Girl Scout may visit gsofct.org and click on the cookie to connect with Girl Scouts participating in the Cookie Program in their town.
