GIRL SCOUT COOKIE SALES START THIS WEEKEND – SEE WHERE TO GET YA SOME!
Written by Ballzer on March 1, 2023
Thousands of Badgerland Girl Scouts are preparing for the annual Girl Scout Cookie Program. The sale kicks off Saturday, March 4 during National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend and lasts only six weeks, til April 9th. In 2023, Badgerland Girl Scouts will be earning updated Financial Literacy badges running their own cookie businesses while learning essential skills like money management, budgeting, goal setting, and communications.
Sally Egan, Director of Entrepreneurial Experience, and her daughter, Rachel, stopped in to tell us more:
Badgerland Girl Scout Cookies are $5 except Gluten-free Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies which are $6. Cookie proceeds stay local benefitting Badgerland Girl Scouts. One hundred percent of the net profit from each box stays local. While troops choose how to invest their earnings in things like service projects and camp outings, Badgerland Council uses cookie earnings to provide impactful, experiences for all Girl Scouts.
Wanna support local Girl Scouts, but don’t need cookies? They have a Cookie Share program, so if you don’t want to eat ’em, you can treat ’em!
