“The Girl Scout Cookie Program® gives our girls the opportunity to pay their way,” said Donna Ceravolo, Executive Director of the Girl Scouts of Nassau County. “Many of the opportunities that our girls are able to experience like overseas travel, camping, and life skills are largely made possible by the sale of our Girl Scout Cookies.”
The Girl Scout Cookies Program® is the world's largest Business and Financial literacy program. In the 86 years that the Girl Scouts Cookie Program® has been in existence, it has continuously offered new ways to help girls grow strong. Girls learn important lessons in Goal Setting, Decision Making, Money Management, People Skills and Business Ethics. The Cookie Program also teaches girls to appreciate and take pride in the work that they've accomplished for themselves and for Girl Scouts. Because of the earning power of the Girl Scout Cookie Program®, no girl is ever turned away from Girl Scouts of Nassau County because of financial need.
Ms. Ceravolo adds, “We are officially in the year of Girl Scouts’ 100th Anniversary and we hope our community will celebrate with us. Be sure to try our 100th Anniversary Cookie, Savannah Smiles. We are sure they will put a smile on your face!"
