National Girl Scout Cookie Day On The Way!
January 22nd, 2013
It’s that time of year again! National Girl Scout Cookie Day arrives on Friday, February 8 at 11am, so remember to save the date to get your hands on some scrumptious sweets from sweetery trucks which will be placed in strategic locations all around the city.
National Girl Scout Cookie Day was established to honor Girl Scout Troops’ efforts in advancing the largest girl-run business enterprise in the country.
There is no doubt that Girl Scout Cookies are an iconic image of American culture. From the first time they were served up way back in 1917 to their omnipresent popularity of today, the sale of Girl Scout Cookies have helped fund the organization that has enabled girls to have fun, grow into mature adolescence, as well as becoming valued contributors in helping make their communities a better place to live.
Revenues from their sales are used to pay for events and activities for the Girl Scouts, maintenance of the councils’ Girl Scout camps and other properties, cookie sale incentives, and Council administrative costs.
The Cookie program is about much more than just selling cookies. It encourages and allows young girls to build a lifetime of invaluable skills such as goal-setting, decision-making, money-management, business-ethics and most importantly – the confidence to interact with people.
Stay tuned to find out which sweetery trucks in selected areas of NYC will have these cookies available for purchase.
Don’t miss out!
