Girl Scouts of Colorado (GSCO) is extending the 2021 Girl Scout Cookie Program through March 21. Due to the challenges of running a business during a pandemic, Girl Scout councils around the nation are extending their cookie programs, and GSCO wanted to give our girls the same opportunity to take more time to meet and exceed their goals. This added time will also give Girl Scouts who may have gotten a slower start or did not start their season in January a chance to reach their goals.
Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Trefoils, Dos-si-Dos, and Lemon-Ups are $4/package. S’mores and gluten-free Toffee-tastic are $5/package. Now more than ever, Girl Scouts are relying on your support and the support of the community to meet their goals and make our world a better place.
“We all know the challenges of operating a business during a pandemic, and I’ve been thrilled to see the innovative and creative ways Girl Scouts have met that challenge and run their cookie businesses safely,” Leanna Clark, Chief Executive Officer of Girl Scouts of Colorado, said. “We decided we should make a change too and allow Girl Scouts and troops more time to deliver that comforting taste of ‘normal’ to their customers this year. Support a Girl Scout or troop near you while they learn about entrepreneurship and make a difference with every box.”
Each purchase of Girl Scout Cookies supports girls in developing five lifelong skills: goal-setting, decision-making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. When you purchase cookies, you are helping girls power their Girl Scout Leadership Experience, and you’re supporting female entrepreneurs. The important leadership, business, and financial literacy skills girls learn through the program position them for success in the future.
We want to hear how your girl is using her Girl Scout skills by taking initiative, caring for the community, and Girl Scouting at home. She can send in her story here.
