If you still haven’t scored your Girl Scout Cookie fix, there’s no better time than National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend.
This Friday through Sunday, Feb. 22 to 24, Girl Scouts across the nation will be out in full effect at local stores and walkabouts in neighborhoods selling their tasty goods. Every cookie purchase helps not only your tastebuds, but the entire girl-led organization. Sales fund troop projects and experiences, as well as programming at the local level, such as outdoor adventure and science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Many Girl Scouts also invest their earnings back into their communities.
In some locations, like the Los Angeles area, buying cookies this weekend can also earn you some extra perks. If you happen to buy a box of Thin Mints with a Golden Ticket, you could be the recipient of 100 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies!
Girl Scout Cookies can only be purchased from a registered Girl Scout. To find Girl Scouts selling cookies near you, visit www.girlscoutcookies.org or use the official Girl Scout Cookie Finder app, free on iOS and Android devices.
