Girl Scout Cookie Program
Congratulations to all our go-getter girls selling cookies this year! Your dedication to the cookie program helped us reach of our goal of selling over 1 million boxes of cookies. You amazing entrepreneurs also helped us distribute over 16,000 “care to share” packages of cookies to your hometown heroes!

The girls really used all your skills this year. You weathered storms, like the Storm Troopers you are, found new locations to set up your booths, and we also had more lemonade stands in our communities than ever before! You walked about, pulled your wagon, setup your storefronts all with a smile and a thank you, like the amazing entrepreneurs we know you are. We can’t say enough about how proud we are of you!

A Big THANK YOU to all the Troop Leaders, parents, Cookie Chairs, Cupboard Coordinators, Booth Coordinators, community supporters, and girls who helped make the 2023 Girl Scout Cookie season a success! We're still crunching the numbers, but over 487 troops with over 3761 girls participated in this year's cookie program, and have sold to date over 1.1 million boxes of Girl Scout cookies!
