The 2015 Girl Scout Cookie Program is just around the corner.
Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois will kick off the cookie program Jan. 10-31 during the first Cookie Booth Weekend of the season. At these booths, customers can purchase cookies directly from girls at locations throughout southern Illinois. Traditional cookie order takes place from Jan. 10 through Jan. 31, with Girl Scouts taking orders for the cookies, which will be delivered in late February. For information, call (800) 345-6858 or visit http://bit.ly/CookieFinder. Customer demand for Girl Scout Cookies following delivery is usually high, so additional Cookie Booth Weekends will be held Feb. 27 through March 15. Find Girl Scout Cookie Booths by using the Girl Scout Cookie app or Little Brownie Baker’s Cookie Locator at http://cookielocator.littlebrownie.com/.
For girls and troops who have not signed up yet to sell Girl Scout Cookies or reserve cookies for a January Cookie Booth, contact Kelly Jansen at (618) 899-5204 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org; or contact Katie Grayling at (618) 899-5207 or email@example.com.
The cookie program is the largest girl-led business in the country and generates many benefits for girls and their communities. Girls who participate in the 2015 Girl Scout Cookie Program benefit from “learning by earning” and develop five life skills — goal-setting, decision-making, money management, people skills and business ethics. Girls use their proceeds to support their chosen activities for the year, to fund community service and leadership projects, to attend summer camp or to travel to destinations.
