01/08/14 Girl Scouts of Northern Indiana are ready to provide the community with its favorite treat as they learn valuable life lessons. Cookies will be on sale beginning Friday, January 10, continuing through March 11. For $3.50 per box, customers can help girls build business skills and gain financial knowledge as they sell these Girl Scout Cookie varieties: Thin Mints, Shortbread, Peanut Butter Patties®, Peanut Butter Sandwiches, Caramel deLites®, Thanks-A-Lot™, Lemonades™ and our new Cranberry Citrus Crisps! Cranberry Citrus Crisps are crispy cookies, made with whole grain, full of tangy cranberry bits and zesty citrus flavor.
The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the largest girl-led business in the country and helps girls build important life and leadership skills. Through cookie program activities, girls learn how to plan, build teams, speak up, make decisions, solve problems and manage resources. These skills help girls learn to be leaders – ultimately in their own lives and in our communities. Girls are the main beneficiaries of all Girl Scout cookie activities, directly and indirectly. While learning valuable life skills and earning money for their troops, the girls decide how to spend that money to achieve their troop projects and goals. “We don’t know of any other youth-oriented activity where the girls themselves decide what to do with the money they earn,” says Connie Frederick, Product Program Manager.
