Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England Kicks Off 2024 Girl Scout Cookie Season

Posted

Consumers in southeastern New England can now support local Girl Scouts by ordering from the iconic cookie lineup, earning funds that fuel amazing experiences in the outdoors, STEM, and beyond.

[Warwick, RI—January 9, 2024]—Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England (GSSNE) has officially kicked off the 2024 Girl Scout Cookie season, the annual event in which Girl Scouts unbox their futures as young female entrepreneurs through the world’s largest entrepreneurial program for girls.

During this highly anticipated time of the year, Girl Scouts flex their entrepreneurial muscles and acquire important life skills like goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics. All proceeds from the cookie program stay local with the GSSNE council and troops to power Girl Scouts’ amazing experiences year-round.

This year’s theme, Unbox the Future, aims to remove social barriers that often keep girls boxed in. When bold, goal-getting Girl Scouts sell a package of cookies, they’re doing much more than what’s seen at face value. Girl Scouts are entrepreneurial powerhouses creating a more equitable future for themselves and the world. Every box of cookies sold provides invaluable experiences for Girl Scouts such as service projects, troop travel, and summer camp.

This season, cookie lovers can enjoy the full assortment of Girl Scout Cookies, including fan favorites such as Thin Mints®, Caramel deLites®, Peanut Butter Sandwich, and more.

“I am so excited for cookie season once again! I continue to be impressed by the ways the Cookie Program develops courage, confidence, and character in our Girl Scouts. Troop and individual cookie goal setting leads to incredible adventures and badge-earning opportunities. I love the camaraderie at cookie booths as Girl Scouts coordinate roles, I love their presentation of lined up packages in rainbow order, and I love seeing each individuals’ selling techniques. I love the practicing of math skills as they count totals and make change. As a Girl Scout parent, these are some of my favorite moments,” said Dana Borrelli-Murray, GSSNE CEO.

Nearly 700,000 Girl Scouts participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, during which Girl Scouts can earn a variety of badges and awards to develop valuable business skills including Cookie Business badges, Financial Literacy badges, Cookie Entrepreneur Family pins, and Entrepreneur badges.
