Girl Scouts ramp up cookie drive

Local Girl Scouts will begin this year’s cookie drive beginning Feb. 12.  

Cookies are only available for approximately two months, then the girls decide where the proceeds go.

This year, Girl Scouts can also track their goals online and become part of a safe online Cookie Connector asking their friends and families to purchase cookies. Price per box is $4, and all of the proceeds generated from the Girl Scout Cookie Program stay within the girls’ local area.

We don’t plan to change that model. Support from our readers will help us maintain and strengthen the editorial independence that is crucial to our mission to help make Western North Carolina a better place to call home.
