Support Girls in Your Community by Buying Girl Scout Cookies
It’s that time of year again when Girl Scout cookies are available. As a savvy consumer you might be conflicted about buying Girl Scout cookies especially if you have a relative or friend whose child is selling them. Face it, at around $3.50 a box, it can seem like a small fortune, especially when there aren’t that many cookies in a box. If your own daughter is a Girl Scout, then you know very well you’ll probably buy way more boxes than you can fit in your pantry. Below I’ll address why Girl Scout cookies aren’t as overpriced as you might think.
Just $3.50 a Box
For around $3.50 a box, your Girl Scout cookie purchases go towards helping to support this valuable organization. Each box clearly labels just what it is your dollars support: strong values, strong minds, strong bodies, strong spirit, strong friendships, strong skills, strong leadership, and strong community.
Cookie purchases help to train volunteer leaders for your local troops, reduce camp fees, and sponsor special projects. The price per a box of Girl Scout cookies does vary by region, so your local troop might sell them for more or less than this amount.
Who Are The Girl Scouts?
The Girl Scouts was founded in 1912 by Juliette Gordon Low. Participating in Girl Scouts can be a great confidence booster and social opportunity for young girls. Girl Scouts provides a great opportunity for a young girl to explore and learn with their peers. A supportive all-girls environment can provide an enriching experience.
Something for Everyone
There are many varieties of Girl Scout cookies available so you are sure to find something you like. All varieties of Girl Scout cookies come packaged in a brightly colored box with an eye-catching real-life design featuring pictures of Girl Scouts in action. If you crave a refreshing taste, you’ll probably enjoy the Thin Mints. Those who prefer a classic cookie will probably enjoy Shortbread cookies.
Twice as Sweet
By supporting a valuable organization that the girls in your life are members of, you are in turn supporting those girls, and putting a price on that support is difficult. Don’t pass up the opportunity this year to purchase Girl Scout cookies because if you change your mind, you’ll have to wait another year!
