The Girl Scouts of Central Illinois kick off annual Girl Scout Cookie Activity on January 13. Girl Scouts throughout the region will take orders from family, friends, and neighbors through February 5, 2012.
This year’s sale offers eight cookie varieties - Thin Mints, Caramel DeLites, Shortbreads, Lemonades, Peanut Butter Patties, Peanut Butter Sandwiches, Shout Outs, and Thanks-A-Lots. Every year, thousands of girls gain valuable knowledge while providing the community with a special treat. Operation Cookie Share – returns this year! Girl Scouts will once again offer Operation Cookie Share as part of the Cookie Sale. Operation Cookie Share allows customers to not only support their local Girl Scouts, but also show their support for our military. When customers are asked if they would like to purchase cookies, they will also have the option to purchase additional boxes for military troops.
This is the third year for the program, which has resulted in a total 145,164 boxes being delivered to military troops. Operation Cookie Share will run from pre-sales ordering throughout Cookie Booth season. Operation Cookie Share is held in sponsorship with the Adopt-a-Soldier program sponsored by State Farm’s military affinity group (MAG), an employee resource group that supports the military and theirfamilies.
