Garden City, NY December 17, 2012 – This Girl Scout Cookie season is just around the corner and with it brings the new face of the Girl Scout Cookie box featuring pictures of girls from the Girl Scouts of Nassau County. New boxes of popular Cookies, including Thin Mints, Tagalongs, Samoas and Savannah Smiles, will make their official debut in January for all Long Islanders to enjoy.
“We were so excited for four of the new Cookie boxes to feature some of our girls as the new faces of the Girl Scout Cookie,” said Donna Ceravolo, Executive Director of the Girl Scouts of Nassau County, Inc. “We are looking forward to Cookie season in January and showing off these new boxes to all of our Cookie lovers and supporters.”
The new Cookie boxes feature the five skills learned through the Girl Scout Cookie® Program, as well as highlights of badges, quotes from girls, the Gold Awards and additional information about Girl Scouting. The new Cookie boxes are part of the “This is What a Girl Can Do” Cookie campaign that showcases the skills and confidence girls gain through the Cookie program.
The Girl Scout Cookie® Program is a key part to the Girl Scouting Leadership Experience. Much more than a way to raise money, the Girl Scout Cookie® Program is a hands-on entrepreneurial opportunity that teaches girls goal setting, decision making, money management, business ethics, and people skills. These are skills that last far beyond the Cookie Season. Proceeds from the Girl Scout Cookie® Program stay in Nassau County to fund Troop and Council activities.
