Girl Scouts of South Carolina – Mountains to Midlands began making stops on doorsteps across the state this past weekend as they kicked off the annual Girl Scout Cookie sales.
The door sales started Friday, and direct cookie sales will be held at area retail outlets four consecutive weekends beginning Feb. 25.
Cookies are $3.50 per box again this year. Proceeds stay in the area and support programming, membership assistance, program development, property improvements and training opportunities for girls.
Cindy Becker is the service unit cookie manager for Northeast Richland and the leader of Troops 1334 and 3169. She spoke recently about cookie sales and their benefits to Scout members, and what’s new this year.
First of all, let’s put the biggest question to rest. What is the new cookie this year?
