Get ready! The 2013 Girl Scout Cookie Sale begins December 21 and runs through March 27.
If you don't have the opportunity to purchase Girl Scout Cookies directly from a Girl Scout, click here to find a booth sale (e.g. when girls have a table outside the Stop & Shop entrance) close to you. Booth sales begin January 19.
In our council, girls can sell Girl Scout cookies from late December through the end of March.
Some troops choose to sell “directly” – boxes of cookies are immediately available to customers. Other troops choose to take orders from customers and fulfill them once all the orders are in.
The girls in our council sell cookies throughout Rhode Island, in Pawcatuck, CT and in these communities in MA: Attleboro, Bellingham, Blackstone, Fall River, Millville, North Attleborough, Plainville, Rehoboth, Seekonk, Somerset, Swansea, Westport, and Wrentham.
Where Does the Money Go?
We sell our cookies for four dollars a box and every penny of profit stays to benefit girls in our local area. Troops earn proceeds to go on exciting trips, girls can earn credits toward a summer at Girl Scout camp.
At the end of the season, troops can elect to make a contribution from their Cookie Sale proceeds to this year's charity: The Gabrielle Dinsmore Heart and Hope Fund. The organization provides educational, emotion, recreationa nd financial support to children and families living in RI, CT and MA impacted by congenital heart disease, heart defects and severe feeding issues.
Most recently, the girls in our council elected to contribute more than $5,000 to the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation. Past recipients have included Marvin's Fund at the Rhode Island Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the Greenlock Therapeutic Riding Center in Rehoboth, MA.
This year we'll be offering a new cookie: Mango Cremes.
These tangy, refreshing tropical treats are packed with great taste AND vitamins! Crunchy vanilla and coconut cookies feature a mango-flavored creme filling with all the nutrient benefits of eating cranberries, pomegranates, oranges, grapes, and strawberries!
Close your eyes, take a bite, and feel like you’re on a tropical island. Mango Cremes combine a crispy cookie with the taste of mango. No trans fats, hydrogenated oils, or preservatives—just pure island delight!
The girls in our council sell Thin Mints, Peanut Butter Patties, Peanut Butter Sandwiches, Thanks-A-Lots, Mango Cremes, Lemonades, Short Breads, and Caramel deLites.
When a Girl Scout sells you cookies, she's doing more than just handling you a box. She's creating a plan, interacting with customers, and working as part of a team. She's building a lifetime of skills and confidence.
The $700 million Girl Scout Cookie Program is the largest girl-led business in the country. In fact, many successful business women today say they got their start selling Girl Scout Cookies!
The Girl Scout Cookie Program empowers a girl with the strength, abilities, and drive to become an accomplished woman who benefits herself, her family and hte world. Fromheads of the household, to Heads of State, troop leaders to world leaders, Girl Scouts touches every aspect of society.
