Girl Scout cookie sales wrap up March 10

Posted

Sunday, March 10 is the final day to purchase Girl Scout cookies.

Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Trefoils, Do-Si-Dos and Savannah Smiles are available for $4 per package, and the S’mores, and gluten-free Toffee-tastic cookies sell for $5 per box.

Each box of cookies purchased helps support Girl Scout experiences such as travel, outdoor adventure, and STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) programming.

Colorado Girl Scouts sell cookies online, door-to-door and in front of major retailers.

“Girl Scout cookie time is all about teaching girls lifelong business skills,” Stephanie Foote, president and CEO of Girl Scouts of Colorado, said in a news release. “The proceeds from these girl-led businesses go to fund all the adventures you get to have as a Girl Scout.”

In addition, Girl Scouts honor the nonprofit organizations, food banks, military, and uniformed personnel who are so important to the community through the Hometown Heroes/Gift of Caring program. Through this program, customers purchase a package of cookies to donate to Girl Scouts’ heroes. Girls learn about the work of their recipients by taking tours, learning about careers in public service and helping with service projects. All Hometown Heroes/Gift of Caring purchases may be eligible for a tax deduction. The 2019 goal for the Hometown Heroes/Gift of Caring program in Colorado is 200,000 packages. 

To purchase cookies, use the “Cookie Locator” online or the mobile app to search for booth sale locations. Go to girlscoutsofcolorado.org.

All Girl Scout Cookie varieties contain zero grams of trans fat per serving. Thin Mints are vegan. Do-Si-Dos and Trefoils have no hydrogenated oils. Further information about Girl Scout Cookie ingredients can be found at littlebrownie.com.
