It’s Girl Scout Cookie time

Bundle5-copyLocal Girl Scouts are now taking orders for Girl Scout Cookies to be delivered in early March. There are seven varieties which sell for $4 a box; all of the proceeds support local Girl Scouts and programs. A new gluten-free option, available in limited quantities, is the buttery Toffee-tastic at $5 box.

This annual program is the leading financial literacy program for girls in the U.S., teaching them five essential skills they’ll use for the rest of their lives: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. Girls can earn money to pay their way to Girl Scout camp and other fun and exciting opportunities.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program enables girls to attend camp, have endless enjoyable learning opportunities (Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains offers more than 100 programs for girls) and learn valuable leadership skills. All proceeds remain local to support girls in New Hampshire and Vermont.
