It’s the last week to purchase Girl Scout Cookies

girl scoutsGirl Scout Cookie lovers, this is the last weekend cookies will be on sale! The Girl Scout Cookie season is coming to a close on Sunday, March 31.

Purchasing cookies support Girl Scout troops in southwestern and central Virginia. Every box purchased helps power unique and amazing experiences for the girls who sell them. It also gives each girl the opportunity to learn essential life skills, soar in confidence, and quickly discover the leader within.

You can find a local Girl Scout Cookie booth with our Cookie Finder link: girlscoutcookies.org or call us at 540-777-5100 or email us at info@gsvsc.org to find local cookie troops.

This year’s best-selling cookies are:
#1 – Thin Mints
#2 – Caramel deLites/Samoas
#3 – Peanut Butter Patties/Tagalongs
#4 – Girl Scout S’mores
#5 – Peanut Butter Sandwiches/Do-si-dos

More than just delicious cookies, the Girl Scout Cookie Program fuels girls’ development of entrepreneurial and essential life skills, and the cookie earnings power amazing experiences for girl members. Almost 1 million Girl Scouts participate in the cookie program each year, generating nearly $800 million in sales during the average season. And all of the net revenue raised—100 percent of it—stays within the Virginia Skyline Council area. Virginia Skyline Council uses cookie earnings to provide incredible experiences for girls through programming, while girls and their troops decide how to invest in impactful community projects, personal enrichment opportunities, and more. Girl Scout troops are doing amazing things made possible by each and every cookie sale like badge work, field trips to local museums, camping in the great outdoors, community service projects and learning about science and technology with hands-on experiences.
