As the holiday season has come and gone, it is time to tee up another beloved season — Girl Scout Cookie season.
Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas Council representative and local troop leader Janna Phan said cookie sales are the troops largest fundraising initiative, “to ensure the girls get the best experience possible.”
“The money helps in so many areas,” she said speaking on behalf of her specific troop. “It helps the girls have a chance to experience things that they may not get a chance to do, such as learning archery, going to camp, horseback riding, STEM, and even learn a new life skill. The money also pays for their yearly membership and uniforms.”
As cookie sales begin Jan. 15, Phan said they can be bought in front of some of the big chain stores, or the scouts will be walking throughout the neighborhood with parental supervision. Cookies will also be available digitally.
“We will be of course be safe, as the girls are going to wear masks and we’ll have hand sanitizer provided,” she said. “You can also check on parents’ personal pages promoting Girl Scout cookie season coming their way.”
Phan said her favorite cookie changes just about every year. This year’s, she said, are the trefoils.
“It’s traditional, simple and scrumptious,” she said. “The trefoil is one of the original Girl Scout cookies. We have been going strong selling cookies for over 100 years.”
