Girl Scout cookie sales begin locally

Friday started cookie sales all across the area. Girl Scouts have been selling cookies in the area for more than half a century. Cookie time is the major fundraiser for the girls and their troops to raise enough money for the year to go on trips, do events, buy supplies and more.

During the past decade or more, cookie time has become much more than just selling cookies, it has become a community service event. The girls commit to Cookie Share. Cookie Share is when boxes of cookies are sent to people and places to whom the girls want to donate. During the past seven years, girls have sent cookies to our active military personnel in Iraq, Afghanistan and other areas. The cookies have also been donated to food pantries, youth organizations and other organziations in our communities.

So this year when a Girl Scout comes knocking on your door or catches you out and about, please consider buying a box or two for yourself or a loved one, and if you do not want them for yourself, then consider a donation to a worthy cause. If you do not get asked by a Girl Scout, watch for cookie booth sales starting March 1 or call the Girl Scout offices.
