It’s Girl Scout cookie time. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love Girl Scout cookies and I love how the program builds confidence in young girls.
Each box sells for $3.50.
The sales program helps girls develop five crucial skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics.
These skills equipment girls “with important leadership skills that will provide a lifelong foundation for success,” says Colleen Walker, chief executive officer for the Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas, in information sent to the paper.
Project Troop to Troop is also back. It encourages people to buy Girl Scout cookies that are then donated to the U.S. Armed Forces. Last year, Project Troop to Troop in Northeast Texas donated more than 166,000 packages of Girl Scout cookies that were sent to military personnel at home and abroad, veterans’ organizations and wounded soldiers.
