Girl Scout cookie sales start Jan. 4. To support our Bolingbrook Girl Scouts and to make sure you don't miss out, we're making a list of local troops who can deal a sugary fix of your favorite variety.
Here's a handy list of local troops, leaders and their contact information. They're ready and waiting to deliver the cookies you crave.
Can't remember which variety you like best? When in doubt, buy a bunch—or check out the Cookie Guide.
What You Need to Do
Take out the email addresses and individuals' contact info, and include this blurb as your new lede:
It's time to stock up on your favorite Girl Scout cookies. Not sure where to buy them near you? You can plug your zip code into the cookie finder on the Scouts' website to find out.
And just in case you were wondering...
just where all that cookie money goes, we did our homework. According to the Girl Scouts of America, all of the revenue earned from cookie activities stays with the local Girl Scout council that sponsors the sale. This includes the portion that goes directly to the group selling cookies. Councils use their cookie revenue to supply essential services to troops, groups, and individual girls, such as providing program resources and communication support, training adult volunteers, and conducting special events.
Any of these Girl Scouts or their leaders would be happy to help. Or Patch! We're definitely not the cookie experts, though.
