RIVERDALE — Did you forget to order your favorite cookie treat? It’s not too late! Girl Scouts across northern New Jersey will continue selling Girl Scout Cookies through April 14. More than 1,000 booth sales are planned throughout Bergen, Morris, Passaic, Sussex and northern Warren counties.
“We often hear customers say that they do not know a Girl Scout who is selling cookies, or where they can purchase cookies in their area,” said Betty Garger, President and Chief Executive Officer of Girl Scouts of Northern New Jersey. “Girls will be holding cookie booth sales every weekend until April 14 throughout the area, so customers will be able to find their cookies right away, and still support Girl Scouts who are trying to reach their cookie sales goals.”
Cookie customers can visit the cookie locator on the Girl Scout Web site at www.girlscoutcookies.org. By typing in a zip code, customers can locate the nearest cookie booth sale. Serious Girl Scout cookie customers can also download the Girl Scout Cookie app for Andriods or IPhones.
The Girl Scout Cookie Program helps girls develop five essential skills - business ethics, people skills, money management, goal setting, and decision making – and help girls earn money for activities, trips and service projects. All cookie proceeds stay in the local community. The Cookie program also generates funds for volunteer training and updates to camp properties and service centers. All cookie proceeds stay in the local community.
Six varieties of cookies are being sold at $5 a box, including Thin Mints, Do-Si-Dos, Tagalongs, Trefoils, Samoas, and Savannah Smiles. Gluten-free “Toffee-tastic” cookies and “S’more” cookies will sell for $6 per box.
