It's Girl Scout Cookie Time


It's that time of year again for Girl Scout Cookie sales! One thousand five hundred and sixty-nine cases of cookies were delivered by Paul Arpin Van Lines to East Bay Self Storage located at 3346 Pawtucket Avenue in Riverside for distribution to East Providence Girl Scouts. That totals 18,828 boxes of cookies that East Providence Girl Scouts will be selling. Cookie sales are the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program in the world. Selling cookies teaches the girls goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics. It helps them power new, unique, and amazing experiences for themselves and their troop.

Girl Scout cookies will be available for sale until the end of March. The varieties include: Thanks-A-Lot, Girl Scout S'mores, Lemonades, Shortbread, Thin Mints, Peanut Butter Patties, Caramel deLites, Peanut Butter Sandwiches and gluten free Caramel Chocolate Chip. Except for the gluten free Caramel Chocolate Chip cookies, a box of cookies cost $5.00. The gluten free Caramel Chocolate Chips cost $6.00 a box. If you would like to buy a box of cookies, you can visit the Girl Scout web site at www.gssne.org. to find a booth sale location. "Click" on the words Find Cookies, enter your zip code, and then click "Go". You will get a listing of the various sale sites and times when cookies can be purchased. If you are unable to visit any of the sale sites, but would like to buy some cookies, please call Linda at 401-433-4028 to ask about purchasing some.

East Providence Girl Scouts would like to thank Pat Bettencourt and the staff of East Bay Self Storage for being gracious by allowing them to use their facilities to distribute the cookies. It was greatly appreciated.
