The iconic Girl Scout cookie sale is back in Southern Nevada. The cookie line-up includes customer favorites from Little Brownie Bakers: Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Trefoils, Do-si-dos, and Savannah Smiles for $5 a box, along with two specialty flavors: Girl Scout S’mores and Toffee-tastics for $6 a box. Local Girl Scouts will begin door-to-door selling to friends and family on January 18 and cookie booths will open at local supermarkets and businesses beginning March 1.
Through the Girl Scout Cookie Program, girls not only discover their inner leadership potential but also use their earnings to power girl-led experiences for themselves and their troop, including domestic and international travel, outdoor adventure, and STEAM programming. Cookie sale proceeds stay local, meaning that when Southern Nevadans purchase their favorite cookies, they’re giving back to their wider community.
“At a time when girl and women leaders are making their mark in every corner of society, the Girl Scout Cookie Program is imperative to ensuring our country has a strong workforce and economy,” said Linda Bridges, Chief Communications Officer for Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada. “When you purchase a box (or more) of cookies, you empower local Girl Scouts to become financially independent, learn critical thinking skills, and directly impact our community.”
The sale of cookies as a way to finance troop activities began in 1917, five years after Juliette Gordon Low started Girl Scouts in the United States. 2,870 local Girl Scouts sold over 860,000 boxes of cookies in 2018. All proceeds raised during cookie season stays in Southern Nevada and helps Girl Scouts attend camp, fund trips, and complete service projects. The ultimate goal of cookie season is to help fund troop activities and to teach Girl Scouts about the importance of financial literacy.
