Cookie Season is here!

It's that time of year again! The Girl Scout Cookie Program in San Jacinto Council kicked off December 19, so you may have seen our Girl Scouts on your street or at your doorstep asking that magic question: would you like to buy Girl Scout Cookies?

And beginning Friday, February 12, you'll begin to see them in front of stores selling from their cookie booths.

But do you know why Girl Scouts sell cookies? And if you haven't seen them yet, maybe where to buy them?

Why should you buy Girl Scout Cookies this year?

When cookie lovers like you participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program by buying a package of your favorite cookies, you make dreams possible. And when girls participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, they receive more than money to fund their new adventures. They develop important life skills, like goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics, that will set them up for success beyond anything they can imagine.

So it's no wonder why we ask you to buy the delicious cookies you crave all year from your local Girl Scout cookie professional. You'll enjoy your favorite cookies even more knowing you helped a girl achieve her goals, learn new skills and earn funds for her all her Girl Scouting adventures.
