DANBURY, Conn. – Girl Scouts from the around the region will celebrate the start of Girl Scout Cookie Season with a rally at Danbury Fair Mall on Saturday, Jan. 7, from noon until 4 p.m.
Connecticut Girl Scouts and their families, along with Girl Scout volunteers and staff, will participate in the rally. The girls will learn tips and tricks about cookie selling, participate in a number of hands-on activities, and receive a marketing kit to help them with their sales. There is no pre-registration and it is free. Girls do not have to stay the entire time.
The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the largest girl-led entrepreneurial business in the world. This year, the Girl Scouts organization is celebrating 100 years of Girl Scouts selling cookies. By purchasing a box of cookies, supporters are helping Girl Scouts learn five skills: goal setting, money management, business ethics, people skills, and decision making.
In celebration of 100 years of Girl Scouts selling cookies, Girl Scouts is introducing a new cookie to its lineup: Girl Scout S’mores.
Throughout the cookie season, Girl Scouts will also ask customers to support the Cookies for Heroes Gift of Caring Service project. The program allows the public to support the delivery of cookies to our service women and men overseas and at home in our communities.
Girl Scouts will begin taking orders on Saturday, Jan. 7. To find a Girl Scout near you and to learn more about the Girl Scout Cookie Program, log on to gsofct.org and click on the “Looking for Cookies."
