13 Feb IT IS GIRL SCOUT COOKIE SEASON! WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE COOKIE FLAVOR?
Everyone has a special place in their heart for Girl Scout Cookies. Not only because they’re spectacularly delicious, but also because purchasing Girl Scout Cookies powers the Girl Scout Cookie Program and helps girls fulfill their dreams, gain great experience, and help to improve their communities. Girl Scout Cookies not only help Girl Scouts earn money for fun, educational activities and community projects, but also help to introduce them to entrepreneurial skills. This year marks the 100 Year Anniversary of the Girl Scout Cookie program. In 1917, Girl Scouts in Muskogee, Michigan decided to sell cookies baked in their kitchens to help raise funds for their projects.It wasn’t until the late 1930s that commercial bakeries started baking cookies for the program. The Cookie Program has certainly grown since that humble beginning. Today over 50 million U.S. households buy Girl Scout Cookies every year.
