You Can Still Get Your Girl Scout Cookies

March 16, 2011

All over Southeastern Wisconsin, cookie lovers are eagerly awaiting delivery of their Girl Scout Cookies. It’s an annual ritual: the anticipation of the neighborhood — a Girl Scout’s arrival on your doorstep with your favorite sweets. You’re in luck. Whether you missed the order period or you are ready for another round of cookies, you have more opportunities to get Girl Scout cookies during the months of March and April.

 

Over 700 cookie booths are being held at convenient locations, allowing customers to immediately purchase cookies. Some of the participating stores include Sam’s Club, Pick N’ Save, Sentry, Piggly Wiggly, Shopko, and Kmart. Check the Cookie Booth Locator button on www.gwise.org for specific dates, times, and additional sites in your area.

 

There are eight Girl Scout Cookie varieties to choose from: Shoutouts!™, Peanut Butter Patties®, Thin Mints, Caramel deLites®, Thanks-A-Lots™, Shortbread, Lemonades™, and Peanut Butter Sandwiches. The Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast (GSWISE) reminds customers that their purchases support the premiere business and economic literacy program that develops girls into our women leaders of tomorrow.

 

“Through the Cookie Program Activity, Girl Scouts learn valuable business skills such as money management, customer service, goal setting, and teamwork,” said CEO Molly Fuller. “These skills last a lifetime.”

 

The Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast Web site contains a link allowing customers to enter their zip code to get information on their nearest cookie booth location, as well as sale dates and times. Simply visit www.gswise.org and click on the Cookie Booth button. New Cookie Booth sites are added daily.

 

Girl Scout Cookie Program Activity proceeds stay in the community and benefit girls directly through funding troop events and activities, service projects, and supplies. Indirectly, proceeds are used to keep programs affordable for all girls, recruit and train volunteers, give financial assistance to girls, and used for the maintenance and upgrading of Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast facilities.

 

Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast serves over 28,500 girls in grades K through 12 in Kenosha, Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine, Walworth, Waukesha, and Washington counties. Girl Scouts is the pre-eminent development organization and leading authority on girls’ healthy development.
