Girl Scout cookies are coming

Staff Report

Girl Scouts across the country will be asking customers to purchase cookies for our military service members this year through Operation Cookie. Grayson County has set a goal of “selling” 200 boxes of donated cookies, and they need the community’s help in reaching their goal. Anyone can buy a $4 box of Girl Scout cookies, and they will be shipped to service members around the world. Even if you are diabetic, donating a box of Girl Scout cookies can show your support of the military and your local Girl Scouts.

This year, flavors include Samoas, Thin Mints, Trefoils, Do-Si-Dos, Tag-A-Longs, Savannah Smiles, and Rah-Rah Raisins. A limited supply of Toffee Tastic is available in Grayson County, so ask your favorite Girl Scout quickly to get this crunchy caramel flavor. Grayson County, like much of Kentucky, is a Samoa county. Samoas are the top seller across the state.

Girl Scouts will sell cookies from Jan. 1-16. Orders can be placed from Jan. 18 through Feb. 8, but they will come in later. So if you want the first chance at the cookies, find your favorite Girl Scout before Jan. 16! Booth sales begin Feb. 19 and end March 13. You can find booths at local shopping centers including Walmart, TSC, and Hometown IGA.

A new tool is available for those who really want those Girl Scout cookies before anyone else. Digital Cookie can be accessed, and cookies ordered through this website will be shipped to the customer’s home before booth sales start. Dell and VISA Checkout sponsored this new tool for Girl Scouts to use. It won’t take the place of girls selling in person but is a convenience for those who want to order cookies. Donated cookies can be purchased through Digital Cookie as well as through in-person sales. These “virtual donations” will count toward Grayson County’s “Stuff the Humvee” challenge.
