Photo by Dave Warner – Stella Grcic and Chloie Wilson were stationed outside of Kinney Drugs last March selling Girl Scout cookies.
Little Falls Girl Scouts, along with girls from across the State are selling their delicious cookies. Cookie season started Dec 29, 2020, & will sell through March 28, 2021.
There are many different ways to get these cookies. You can check with your favorite scout & buy from them either in person or online. Local Troops will have booths set up in the next several weeks so you can get some from them, or you can go to one of our Community Partners spots that have them in stock. If you do not want cookies but want to help support you may donate Cookies ($5.00 a box) to our NYS First Responders & Meals on Wheels.
Cookies are $5.00 a box with most of the money staying local to help our scouting facilities. $.16 goes to their reward program (patches, gifts, etc), $.80-$1.00 goes to their troop, $1.06 is the cost of the cookie, & $2.78 goes to our local GS Camps & Programs put on by the council.
Please consider buying cookies from our Scouts. They love to earn badges & patches, & go on trips. The money their troops earn goes towards all of those things. The Girl Scout cookie program helps girls learn five valuable skills. Goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills & business ethics.
Just go to their Girl Scouts Little Falls NY Facebook page to see where the local booths are, or GSNYPENN.ORG/Cookiefinder & put in your Zipcode.
A Huge Thank You from all our Girl Scouts.
One of our Community Partners is Ed’s Pizza. They will have a table set up so you can purchase cookies at any time.
