By selling Girl Scout products to friends and family, you can develop valuable life skills like goal setting, money management, people skills, business ethics and teamwork – while you have fun! The Girl Scouts of Rhode Island, Inc. sponsors two product sales each year. All Girl Scouts – from Daisies to Ambassadors – can participate. Only troops that have participated in both product sales can do any additional fundraising.
What can a girl do? She can do anything when she puts her mind to it -- and the Girl Scout Cookie Sale can teach her how to do it!
By selling Girl Scout Cookies, girls develop valuable life skills - goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business skills.
Each year we offer 8 delicious varieties of Girl Scout Cookies. There are two bakers of Girl Scout cookies, so selections (and names) vary regionally. In our council, we sell Thin Mints, Peanut Butter Patties, Peanut Butter Sandwiches, Shortbread, Cranberry Citrus Crisps (new this year), Thanks-A-Lots, Lemonades and Caramel deLites.

The 2014 Honorary Cookie Chair is Danielle North, co-anchor for WPRI's Eyewitness News This Morning. Danielle was a Girl Scout and her mother was a troop leader. Danielle served as Cookie Mom for her daughter's troop in Warwick.
In her role as Honorary Cookie Chair, Danielle will be the spokesperson for the 2014 Girl Scout Cookie Sale and champion for the five key life skills that girls develop while participating in the sale. Thank you, Danielle!
Each year GSRI selects a local organization to be the recipient of our annual Cookie Sale Community Service project. Girls can choose to donate a portion of their troop cookie sale proceeds to the organization. It's a great way for the girls to give back to our community! This year we have selected The Matty Fund to be our service project beneficiary.
The mission of The Matty Fund is to provide family resources, raise epilepsy awareness, promote patient safety and improve the quality of life for children and families living with epilepsy.
As always, you can support Girl Scouting and stay on your diet by indicating to the girl selling cookies that you'd like to purchase a box of Girl Scout Cookies for a member of our armed forces serving overseas.
This "taste of home" is always appreciated by our servicemen and women.
