Girl Scout cookies are here
Posted By Editor On January 27, 2013 @ 7:26 pm In Local News | Comments Disabled
The 2013 Cookie Program in Colorado runs from January 27 – March 3, 2013. This year they will be selling the six most popular Girl Scout Cookie varieties, including Do-si-Dos, Samoas, Savannah Smiles, Tagalongs, Thin Mints and Trefoils.
Support Girl Scouts Heroes
You can still support Girl Scout Cookie time even if cookies aren’t your thing. Girl Scouts adopt Hometown Heroes each year during the Cookie Program, such as non-profit organizations, food banks, military and uniformed personnel, and donate cookies to these community heroes. Last year’s statewide program netted 114,565 packages for hundreds of organizations.
Wounded Warriors will be the focus of the 2013 program in Colorado through a program called Operation Cookie. Make a purchase online to support this effort.
Help shape a girl’s future!
Girl Scout Cookies are way more than the tasty treats! Each purchase supports girls in developing five lifelong skills: goal-setting, decision-making, money management, people skills and business ethics.
Girl Scouts began selling Girl Scout Cookies in 1917, and today the program has grown into a $790 million girl-led business. In Colorado in 2012 Girl Scouts earned $2.25 million for their activities, such as going to camp, traveling domestically or internationally, completing a take action project to benefit the community, taking a Girl Scout leadership journey and/or earning a Girl Scout badge on a topic or two of interest.
Girl Scout alumnae are shining examples of the lifelong impact of the Girl Scout Cookie Program. Today, more than two-thirds of women business owners and CEOs, and United States senators and congresswomen, were Girl Scouts. Girl Scouts boasts a 59 million alumnae base, and many of these women tell us they learned their early business leadership skills through selling Girl Scout Cookies.
