It's Cookie Time!
During Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland’s Cookie Sale, Feb. 13 through March 20, you're investing in more than just a tasty treat. You're helping local Girl Scouts prepare to become leaders and entrepreneurs as they develop key skills like goal-setting, decision-making, money management, people skills, and business ethics.
Priced at the same $4 per package, with all of the proceeds staying in Kansas to support Girl Scouting, the nine favorite Girl Scout Cookie varieties are back for customers to choose from. The popular Lemonades – savory slices of shortbread with a tangy lemon-flavored icing – are celebrating their 10th anniversary in 2016.
Help Kansas Girl Scouts reach 100,000 Cookie Shares
This year, Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland is poised to hit the 100,000 Cookie Share mark! Through the council’s Cookie Share Program, customers can simply purchase a package of cookies and donate it to service men and women and their families, or local charities like the Kansas Food Bank. Since the Cookie Share Program started in 2010, Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland has distributed more than 94,500 packages of cookies through the program, including 16,150 “Cookie Shares” in 2015. We can't wait to see Kansas Girl Scouts reach 100,000 Cookie Shares in 2016!
“Through the Girl Scout Cookie Program, the largest girl-led business in the world, each girl creates and runs her cookie business to support her goals and ambitions – whether it’s attending a Girl Scout camp, completing a service project that impacts her community, or even traveling the world,” said Liz Workman, CEO of Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland. “I hope that every cookie customer takes time to ask our girls about their goals. Also, be sure to ask them about Cookie Shares, which support both the Girl Scout and members of the military or local charities.”
Continue the tradition: Invest in a girl!
Selling Girl Scout Cookies is a tradition that dates back to 1917, when Girl Scouts began selling home-baked cookies to raise money for their troops and their communities. Make plans today to invest in a girl! The Girl Scout Cookie Sale starts Feb. 13 across the 80 Kansas counties served by Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland. Looking for a Girl Scout to buy cookies from?
