Girl Scout cookie sales outside stores starts Friday

Posted February 17, 2017

Last year, Girl Scouts sold over 1 million boxes of cookies through traditional door-to-door sales and digital sales.

Girl Scout troops support this nation's military men and women through a special effort called "Red, White and You".

Hess will match the brand new, marshmallowy chocolate and graham Girl Scout S'mores cookie with Coffee Grazias Cream Ale.

Today's girls will be looking for a chance to show off their cookie-selling skills at booth sales beginning February 16. Cookies on Tap customers will have an opportunity to write notes of support to accompany the cookies overseas.

The program is centered on five life skills: goal setting, decision-making, money management, people skills and business ethics.

Today, almost 1 million Girl Scouts participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, generating almost $800 million in cookie sales during the average season.

Every year, money earned by girls for their troops supports programs such as camp, domestic and worldwide travel, troop adventures/expenses, and local community service projects.

More than 200 local Girl Scouts attended a ceremony at Las Vegas City Hall.

Local proceeds help fund hundreds of programs and activities that interest girls and help them become girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place.

For the 100 year that Girl Scouts have been selling cookies, what could be more appropriate this year than a new cookie? Troop leaders waited patiently in long lines.
