Girl Scouts in Western New York now selling new, brownie-inspired Adventurefuls Girl Scout cookie alongside other favorites
On Saturday, young girl entrepreneurs from Western New York will kick off their 2022 Girl Scout Cookie season, the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program in the world.
A press release explained, “Support local Girl Scout entrepreneurs by purchasing cookies for yourself, as well as through our Cookie Share Program to our local military and essential workers. Your donation to the Girl Scout Cookie Share program not only benefits local Girl Scouts, but it also helps to show your appreciation for our local community as well. Choose your favorites including the new Adventurefuls, an indulgent brownie-inspired cookie with caramel-flavored crème and a hint of sea salt, and an incredible taste of adventure in every bite.”
Adventurefuls joins the whole portfolio of iconic Girl Scout Cookies including favorites Thin Mints, Caramel deLites and Peanut Butter Patties.
Beginning tomorrow, local Girl Scouts will begin their initial order-taking program. Girls will have their paper order cards available for customers to place an order for delivery in early March.
The press release said, “If you know a Girl Scout, ask how she’s selling cookies via the Digital Cookie online platform for direct shipment or local delivery. Girl Scouts of Western New York will pay up to 50% of shipping costs at six or more packages. Customers order online for direct shipment, cookies are sent directly from the baker and will arrive sooner than waiting for girl delivery in March. Beginning Feb. 18, consumers can enter their ZIP code to purchase cookies online from a local troop for direct shipment or donation to local causes. Don’t know a Girl Scout? Visit our website, www.gswny.org/findcookies, for tools to find Girl Scout cookies near you, or text COOKIES to 59618.”
GSWNY CEO Alison Wilcox said, “The Girl Scout Cookie program helps girls ‘learn while they earn.’ Many families have expressed the need for children and youth to regain connections and social interaction, and in Girl Scouts, girls gain support and friendships that can last a lifetime while they build confidence and skills in a wide range of program opportunities. When you purchase Girl Scout cookies, you not only get a delicious treat, you help fund girls’ adventures and help our Girl Scout entrepreneurs build key business skills at the same time.”
The press release said, “Every package of Girl Scout Cookies fuels local Girl Scouts’ adventures throughout the year: exploring what interests them, discovering their passions, and taking action on issues they care about. Whether they’re using their STEM skills to solve a problem, changing a law to help their community, having a courageous outdoor experience, or starting an innovative nonprofit, Girl Scouts build a better future for themselves and the world. And through the Girl Scout Cookie Program, including earning new Cookie Business badges, girls get a taste of being entrepreneurs and learn important business skills that set them up for success in life.
“All proceeds stay in Western New York to support Girl Scout troops, GSWNY Program, camp properties and support volunteers, who in turn, help girls become go-getters, innovators, risk-takers, and leaders.”
