Local Girl Scouts to extend cookie program

By on March 30, 2012

NORTHERN ILLINOIS—In appreciation of overwhelming community support during Girl Scouts’ 100th year, Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois has decided to extend its local Girl Scout Cookie Booth Program.

The program was originally scheduled to end on March 18 but has been extended to April 8. The extension allows community members added opportunities to purchase cookies at area locations and helps local troops earn increased funding for exciting projects throughout the year.

Girl Scout Cookie Booths are the final phase of the Girl Scout Cookie Program and allow people to buy Girl Scout cookies through direct sales to the public. All booth locations accept cash and checks payable to Girl Scouts. All eight varieties of Girl Scout Cookies will be on sale for only $4 a box.
