The semi-trucks have been arriving in Fort Wayne loaded with Girl Scout cookies. Now, Girl Scouts are ready to provide the community with its favorite treat as they gain valuable business and economic literacy skills.
This year, Girl Scouts cookies will be on sale beginning Friday, January 18. The sale will continue through March 9.
For $3.50 per box, customers can help girls build business skills and financial knowledge as they sell these Girl Scout Cookie varieties:
•Peanut Butter Patties
•Peanut Butter Sandwiches
•Cinna-spins *the new flavor, packaged in 100 calorie bags, 5 bags to a box
•Reduced Fat Cartwheels (oatmeal)
Again this year, all varieties of Girl Scout cookies are “zero trans fat per serving”. The Girl Scout Cookie program helps girls build important leadership skills. Through cookie activities, girls learn how to plan, build teams, speak up, make decisions, solve problems, and manage resources.
These skills add up, so that ultimately, girls learn to be leaders-in their own lives and in our communities. In fact, many successful businesswomen have credited their business skills to the Girl Scout Cookie program, making it the premier business and economic literacy program for girls in the United States.
Girls are the ultimate beneficiaries of the Girl Scout cookie activities-either directly or indirectly. Girls benefit directly by learning valuable life skills, earning money for their troop/group treasuries, and planning how to spend that money to achieve their troop/group goals.
Girls benefit not only by participating in Council-sponsored activities, but also by deciding what to do with the money they earned for their troop projects. We don’t know of any other youth oriented activity where the girls themselves decide what to do with the money they earn.
Girls also benefit indirectly by participating in a wide range of council wide activities, which are made possible in part by the proceeds from the annual Girl Scout Cookie Program. Those proceeds benefit all of the girls in Limberlost Council y providing essential services to membership, such as financial assistance, program resources, training for adult volunteers, and support for special events.
Girl scouting is available to every girl in Adams, Allen, DeKalb, Huntington, Steuben and Wells counties.
