The Girl Scout Cookie Program: This is What a Girl Can Do
Press release from Girl Scouts of Western Ohio, which includes troops in southeast Indiana
(Cincinnati, Oh.) - What can a girl do? A world of good! It’s Girl Scout cookie time, and girls can’t wait to show you how they run their own cookie business! The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the largest girl-run business in the world, and it empowers girls with the strength, abilities and drive they’ll need to become accomplished women who benefit themselves, their family and the world.
By participating in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, girls develop life-long skills that increase their self-confidence and add new dimensions to their lives. Through the cookie program, girls are presented opportunities to learn goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics. Additionally, girls help earn their own way for activities and service projects they choose to do for the year. All Girl Scout Cookie Program proceeds stay in the community.
Beginning Friday, January 10, 2014, girls will begin taking Girl Scout cookie orders. Girl Scouts of Western Ohio will be offering customers a premium selection of the best-selling Girl Scout cookies. A total of six Girl Scout cookies are offered: Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Trefoils, Do-Si-Dos and Savannah Smiles.
Roni Luckenbill, Girl Scouts of Western Ohio CEO states, “With every season of Girl Scout cookies, another generation of girls learns to set goals, make a plan and manage money. As women, they’ll need to know these things whether their goal is to start a business, a family or both. No university has produced as many female business owners as has the Girl Scout Cookie Program.”
Girl Scout cookies are made by Little Brownie Bakers and cookies are selling for $4 a box. In addition, there’s still time to be a Girl Scout this year. Girls wishing to join are welcome and can also participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program.
