Girl Scout Cookies are Here!

Girl Scout Cookies are here in Connecticut! Over the weekend, Girl Scout volunteers and staff across the state unloaded almost 2 million boxes of Girl Scout Cookies to be transported to customers and used for cookie booths for the rest of this month. Can you believe it? Almost 2 million!

Coincidentally, our Cookie Delivery weekend fell on National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend, where Girl Scout councils across the country celebrated Girl Scout Cookies. Did you see Girl Scouts at the Oscars? Incredible!

We also received some great press, too! At our New Britain Cookie Drop Location, Girl Scouts from Troop 66102 in New Britain were live on WFSB all morning sharing how much they loved the Girl Scout Cookie Program. Thanks to all media, including Cablevision in Torrington, The Hour, and Channel 12 who came out and supported our efforts.

What an incredible weekend it was –all of it wouldn’t be possible if it wasn’t for our wonderful, hard-working volunteers and staff who make it all happen. Thank you!

So, if you see a Girl Scout Cookie Booth at your local grocery store, ask a Girl Scout about her cookie goals and what she loves about Girl Scouting. You’ll be impressed with what our incredible girls have to say! And, don’t forget to buy some Girl Scout Cookies. If you don’t have a sweet tooth, you can also donate Girl Scout Cookies to local service women and men at home and overseas through Cookies for Heroes!

To find a Cookie Booth near you, go to girlscoutcookies.org or gsofct.org.


Yours in Girl Scouting,
