Girl Scout Cookies on Sale Today!

CINCINNATI, OHIO; January 9, 2015 – It’s the most wonderful time of the year – Girl Scout Cookie Time!

Beginning today and through February 22, 2015, registered girls will begin taking Girl Scout Cookie orders. Seven varieties of cookies are offered this year: Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Trefoils, Do-Si-Dos, Savannah Smiles, and Rah Rah Raisins. New this year, Rah Rah Raisins are hearty oatmeal cookies with plump raisins and Greek yogurt-flavored chunks. The cookies are selling for $4 per box.

“The Girl Scout Cookie Program is much more than a fundraiser,” said Roni Luckenbill, chief executive officer for Girl Scouts of Western Ohio, “

The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the largest girl-run business in the world. Girls learn skills such as goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. They work together with their fellow troop members and decide how they would like to use the funds they raise, including once-in-a-lifetime travel across the country, buying supplies for service projects, attending summer camp, and much more. All Girl Scout Cookie Program proceeds stay in the community.

“By supporting the Girl Scout Cookie Program, you’re supporting the success of girls in our community and around the world,” said Roni Luckenbill, chief executive officer for Girl Scouts of Western Ohio states, “I encourage people to take the time to ask girls what their goals are this year, how they will be using the funds, and what they’ve learned as they’ve gone through the experience. The answers will inspire you!”

The Girl Scout Cookie Program strives to empower girls with the strength, abilities and drive they’ll need to become accomplished women who benefit themselves, their family and the world.

As part of National Cookie Weekend at the end of February, girls will also be participating in Operation Cookie Booth. Girls will be taking donations for cookies to be shipped to military members serving overseas, in partnership with Heroes in Action. Traditional booth sales will start March 6, 2015 and run through March 29, 2015.

Girls wishing to join Girl Scouts and participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program should visit gswo.org or call the regional Girl Scout Service Center at 513-489-1025.
