Texas Girl Scouts pay it forward with cookies for Hurricane Harvey responders

Texas Girl Scouts pay it forward with cookies for Hurricane Harvey responders

This year, girls will sell cookies door-to-door and at booth sales as well as through the Digital Cookie platform, an innovative and educational web-based addition to the cookie program that helps girls run and manage their Girl Scout Cookie businesses online. Almost 1 million Girl Scouts participate in the cookie program each year, generating nearly $800 million in sales during the average season.

The selling season, which runs January 13 through March 4, will bring cookie lovers classic flavors like Thin Mints, Samoas and Do-Si-Dos, as well as the return of the S'mores cookie, which was introduced previous year. "After the initial orders comes in, the cookies are available the twenty-first of February. The paperwork needs around by March 25".

During the cookie selling season the girls "earn and learn". "A lot of the troops will take part of the money and pay for troop badges and uniforms".




Girl Scout troops in Houston, Texas, are allowing customers to donate part of their purchase to Hurricane Harvey first responders as a way to give back.

Did you know that there's a Girl Scout Cookie Finder app?

Throughout the years, many different flavors have come and gone (does anyone remember the Lemon Chalet Cremes or chocolate-covered, caramel-filled Juliettes?) but a few remain as staples: Thin Mints, Do-si-dos, and shortbread Trefoils are the best-selling varieties. Girl Scouts is the best girl leadership experience in the world.
