It’s Girl Scout cookie time! Did you know the Girl Scout Cookie Program is the largest girl-led business in the world? And there’s more than just cookies inside every box! By participating in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, a girl learns five valuable skills that will help her be successful for the rest of her life, including goal setting, decision making, money management, business ethics and people skills.
In addition, all $4 from every box sold stays right here in our Council which covers 26 counties in southeast Texas. Sixteen percent of the proceeds from every sale goes directly back to the girl. With those proceeds, she may offset the cost of attending a STEM workshop; choose to donate the funds to an area homeless shelter to help children in need; or even save it to go on a Girl Scout-sponsored destinations trip that could take her around the world. It’s amazing what a box of cookies can do!
