There are smiles, purpose, and YUM in every bite!

By the Girl Scouts of Western New York

Girl Scouts of Western New York asks for the community’s support of local girls across GSWNY’s nine-county service area of Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, Niagara, Orleans and Wyoming counties who are participating in the 2021 Girl Scout Cookie Program. Girl Scout Cookie lovers across Western New York are currently able to purchase their favorite cookies from a girl for $5 per box online now, throughout the program, until March 28.

With nine Girl Scout Cookie flavors, new this year is the Toast-Yay! cookie, a French toast-inspired cookie dipped in delicious icing and full of flavor in every bite. The Girl Scout Cookie Program powers amazing experiences for girls. When customers buy cookies, they are doing so much more than purchasing a box of cookies. They are helping girls become confident leaders, by learning the five key life skills like: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the largest entrepreneurial program for girls in the world that powers hands-on and life-changing experiences in a variety of skills areas for girls all year long. With the help of proceeds from the cookie program, girls gain real-world entrepreneurial experience, learn critical life skills, explore the great outdoors, and dive into fun, hands-on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) activities that unleash their imaginations and broaden their worlds. When customers make a local Girl Scout Cookie purchase, they are helping the next generation of entrepreneurs get an important taste of what it takes to become successful in business.

For customers who may want an alternative option to purchasing cookies for personal use, a cookie purchase can be made and donated to the local military or other hometown heroes to support a girl.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program runs now through March 28, and cookies are $5 per box. Also, when customers order six-plus packages, shipping is half-off. Look out for in-person, virtual and drive-thru booths starting in March. To learn more about supporting a girl with a purchase, girl membership and adult volunteerism, visit www.gswny.org or call 1-888-837-6410. Girl Scouts at Home is the No. 1 rated afterschool program by Parents Magazine.

Girl Scouts of Western New York serves nearly 14,000 girls and 6,000 adult volunteers across the GSWNY jurisdiction. The council’s administrative service centers are located in Batavia, Buffalo, Jamestown, Lockport, Niagara Falls and Rochester.

Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place. Through the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, girls discover their personal best and prepare for a positive future, connect with others in an increasingly diverse world and take action to solve problems and improve their communities. To volunteer, reconnect, donate or join, visit www.gswny.org or call 1-888-837-6410.
