The Cookies Are Coming!

Media Contact: Kristina Markovic, Communications Specialist, kmarkovic@gsneo.org, 330-983-0127

Macedonia, Ohio – Truckloads of Girl Scout Cookies will be rolling into Northeast Ohio this week. 

Nearly 2.5 million packages will be delivered to Girl Scouts of North East Ohio (GSNEO) troops March 4 through March 9 in cities including Akron, Lorain, Mentor, Canton and many cities in between.

Beginning March 10, Girl Scout Cookies will also be sold at 6,000 troop-run cookie booths at grocery stores, retailers, and other businesses.  Net proceeds from the Girl Scout Cookie program stay in Northeast Ohio and support troop-chosen activities, community service projects, and adventures at camp and beyond.

"With every box of Girl Scout Cookies you purchase, you are doing a world of good for girls and our communities," said GSNEO Chief Executive Officer Jane Christyson.  “When girls participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, they get more than new adventures. They develop important life skills—goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics—that will set them up for success beyond anything they can imagine.”

Looking to support the Girl Scout Leadership Experience even more? Girl Scout cookies can be donated to Operation: Sweet Appreciation.  Each year, the Council’s Gift of Caring program ships your donated Girl Scout Cookies to members of the military serving overseas.  Last year, Girl Scout Cookie customers were very generous, donating 58,313 boxes!

To find Girl Scout Cookie booths in your neighborhood, download the free Cookie Finder mobile app or visit girlscoutcookies.org.

Hurry … the Girl Scout Cookie sales officially ends April 2.
