Last chance for Girl Scout cookies coming up | Community Spirit
Information provided by Girl Scouts Heart of the South
Short and sweet - that’s the Girl Scout Cookie Sale in a nutshell. Customers only have 2 weekends remaining to get those delicious flavors in 2012. “Girls will continue to have booth sales throughout the area for the next 2 weekends, but after that, they’re gone,” said Jenny Jones, Director of Marketing and Communications for the Girl Scouts Heart of the South.
The 59-county council reports that sales have been very good this year and the organization is expecting a record-breaking sale just in time to celebrate their 100th Anniversary. Juliette Gordon Low founded the Girl Scouts of the USA in her home in Savannah, Georgia on March 12th, 1912.
For those customers who have already gone through their cookie purchases this year, the scouts have tips for making the sale a little sweeter:
- Girl Scout Cookies freeze beautifully. Stock up on your favorite flavors and enjoy them throughout the year.
- Do even more good by purchasing a box for the Troops to Troops program. Customers purchase cookies that are donated by the Girl Scouts to military men and women overseas through a program called Operation Troop Aid.
- Tell someone “thank you.” Girl Scout Cookies make great thank you or recognition gifts for customers, friends, colleagues and teachers.

March 17th and 18th will mark the end of the 2012 cookie season. Girl Scouts use cookie money to do service for their communities, attend summer camp, earn badges and make the world a better place. For more information about Girl Scouting, visit www.girlscoutshs.org.
