National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend proclaimed for Feb. 18-20
Now is the time to stock up on your favorite flavor of Girl Scout Cookies – or maybe try a new flavor! And when you do, you are empowering Girl Scouts in your local community to meet their goals to make the world a better place.
Starting today, Girl Scouts across New Hampshire and Vermont will be running their very own cookie businesses, with cookie booths popping up in places you like to shop. How to find them? It’s easy! Download the Girl Scout Cookie Finder app to your smartphone, or go to girlscoutscookies.org. Those located in the Bedford/Manchester area of New Hampshire or near Williston, Vermont, can also get their cookies delivered through DoorDash!
Brand new Girl Scout Daises in Troop 61222 of Merrimack, NH, have been busy working on their Cookie Goal Setter and My First Cookie Business badges, and are looking forward to sharpening their financial literacy and other business skills and earning the funds to carry out troop activities. In Richmond, Vermont, the Daisies and Brownies of Troop 62845 are planning a year-end adventure they’ll fund with their cookie proceeds. Walpole, NH, Daisy Troop 62345 is starting their first Girl Scout Cookie season, working on their business skills, and in Waterbury, VT, Troop 30228, with Girl Scouts from kindergarten through eighth grade, is planning a Valentine’s Day theme for their cookie booth at a local bookstore on Feb. 13.
Girl Scouts set ambitious goals for their cookie sales, whether it’s funding a trip abroad, paying the expenses of a community project to earn one of Girl Scouting’s highest awards, or just the thrill of being a top cookie seller. It’s not unusual for a Girl Scout to top 1,000 packages sold in a season. One Girl Scout from Dover, NH, is aiming high this year, with a goal of 5,000 packages!
As in-person cookie sales begin, Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains and Girl Scouts of the USA are ready to celebrate National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend Feb.18–20 with the launch of nationwide online cookie ordering. Customers who don’t already know a Girl Scout now have the chance to purchase Girl Scout Cookies online for direct shipment to their door or donation to local causes. Girl Scouts are selling the new Adventurefuls cookie in addition to favorites like Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, and Lemon-Ups.
The annual National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend highlights Girl Scout entrepreneurs across the United States who sell cookies to their families, friends, and communities via in-person booths, door-to-door activity, and the Digital Cookie platform online.
Both New Hampshire and Vermont has proclaimed Feb. 18-21 Girl Scout Cookie Weekend in each state, marking the contribution that the Girl Scout Cookie program makes to the public good.
Every Girl Scout Cookie purchase helps girls learn important entrepreneurial skills and powers amazing adventures for them. Girl Scouts use their cookie earnings to better their communities, explore new things in STEM and the outdoors, plan exciting travel adventures, have fun experiences with their friends, and so much more. Girl Scouts in Vermont and New Hampshire also donate cookies to hometown heroes and the military through our council’s Hometown Heroes program.
If you don’t already know a Girl Scout, enter your zip code at www.girlscoutcookies.org to purchase cookies online or to find socially distant or contact-free cookie booths if they are available in your area. You can also text COOKIES to 59618* or use the official Girl Scout Cookie Finder app for free on iOS or Android devices.
We Are Girl Scouts
Girl Scouts bring their dreams to life and work together to build a better world. Through programs from coast to coast, Girl Scouts of all backgrounds and abilities can be unapologetically themselves as they discover their strengths and rise to meet new challenges—whether they want to climb to the top of a tree or the top of their class, lace up their boots for a hike or advocate for climate justice, or make their first best friends. Backed by trusted adult volunteers, mentors, and millions of alums, Girl Scouts lead the way as they find their voices and make changes that affect the issues most important to them. To join us, volunteer, reconnect, or donate, visit girlscouts.org.
Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains serves girls throughout New Hampshire and Vermont through volunteer-run troops, events, and virtual programs. Visit www.girlscoutsgwm.org to learn more.
