Today, Girl Scouts Western Pennsylvania kicked off the 2023 Girl Scout Cookie season in western Pennsylvania, as Girl Scouts and their troops rally their communities to support the world’s largest entrepreneurial program for girls. Every package of cookies sold provides unique experiences for Girl Scouts such as service projects, troop travel, and summer camp for girls in our region.
Girls will sell and take orders in person, and can receive cookie orders via Digital Cookie®, to personally deliver cookies to their local customers. Beginning February 27, consumers can order their favorite cookies for shipment, directly to their front door, including the new Raspberry Rally™ cookie. In addition to online ordering, consumers can visit gswpa.org to locate a booth near them and purchase cookies in-person from girls at cookie booths beginning March 3.
“The iconic Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches girls invaluable skills for a lifetime of leadership and success,” said Patricia A. Burkart, CEO of Girl Scouts Western Pennsylvania. “When you purchase cookies from a Girl Scout, you are helping to fund her future adventures including troop activities and community service projects.”
The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the world’s largest entrepreneurial program for girls. Girl Scouts’ newly updated Financial Literacy badges offer entrepreneurial playbooks for every age level. From the Cookie Goal Setter badge earned as a Daisy to the Entrepreneur Accelerator for girls in high school, the Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches girls financial literacy, planning, budgeting, teamwork, innovative thinking, and confident decision making. New this year, Raspberry Rally is exclusively offered through digital channels for direct shipment only, enhancing girls’ e-commerce sales and entrepreneurial skills. This latest approach will help to guide the evolution of the cookie program for the digital future.
