Say Cookies! Have your picture taken with the giant cookie boxes in the Macedonia service center reception area on Friday – and post it on Facebook or Instagram.
The Girl Scout Cookie Program empowers girls with the strength, abilities, and drive that they’ll need to become accomplished women who benefit themselves, their family and the world.
Many successful business women today say they got their start selling Girl Scout Cookies, including me!
There’s more to cookies than what’s in the box. Life skills are a main ingredient in the Girl Scout Cookie program:
• Goal Setting
• Decision Making
• Business Ethics
• People Skills
• Money Management
Our Council offers 8 varieties:
1. Thin Mints
6. Thank U Berry Much
7. Dulce de Leche
8. Savannah Smiles
What do girls do with the money they earn?
Girls set cookie goals to support their chosen activities for the year, which may include community service projects, attending summer camp, and travel to destinations near and far. When a girl asks you to purchase Girl Scout Cookies, ask her what her goals are!
What is a Cookies & Milk Break?
A Cookies and Milk Break is a great opportunity to assist girls in meeting their program goals for the Girl Scout Cookie Program. Employers from small businesses to large corporations may sponsor a Cookies and Milk Break as a way to say thank you to their employees and to show support for the Girl Scouts. The cookies served to the employees are purchased from, and served by, local Girl Scouts. The girls will also have a cookie booth set up with additional cookies available to purchase.
What is Operation: Sweet Appreciation?
OSA is GSNEO’s “Gift of Caring” service project. Each year, girls take orders for cookies to be donated to members of the military. Through our partnership with our cookie customers and Operation: Troop Aid, our council donates approximately 30,000 boxes of cookies to US Troops.
Cost: $3.50 each
Currently Girls are taking pre-orders with their 2nd goal getter cards
