It's Cookie Time!
2014 Cookie Program Theme
This year’s theme of “What Can a Girl Do? A World of Good - Her Own Way" encourages girls to use their cookie money to lead Take Action Projects that have MORE IMPACT than ever before. With your guidance and the power of Girl Scout Cookies, girls can make positive changes in the world around them. A girl can speak for those less fortunate, foster changes where they’re needed and have a true impact close to home, and even on the other side of the world. This Cookie Season, girls are encouraged to set high goals and use some cookie money to make the world a better place. They will grow in ways you never dreamed possible.

Largest Girl-Led Business in the Country
When you buy Girl Scout cookies, girls decide where the money goes. Our girls have big hearts and big imaginations, and Girl Scout cookies help bring out the confidence in a girl to turn her dreams into a reality. Through participation in the Girl Scout Cookie Program girls develop five essential skills including goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics.
Proceeds Remain in Local Community
Cookies are $4.00 per box upon delivery, and all proceeds remain locally to fund both council and troop activities, maintain camp properties, fund recruitment and training of adult volunteers, and support council-wide initiatives.
Eight Varieties of Cookies
Try our newest cookie, Savannah Smiles, this lemon wedge cookie is cool and crisp, with just the right number of lemon chips to deliver tiny burst of flavor. And when you hold it right, you’ll quickly be reminded of that world famous “Brownie Smile.” And it wouldn’t be Girl Scout Cookie time without favorites like Thin Mints, Samoas, Trefoils, Tagalongs, Do-Si-Dos, as well as relative newcomers, the Thank U Berry Munch and Dulce de Leche cookies. All cookies are preservative-free, kosher, with zero trans fat per serving.
We're offering all EIGHT varieties of Girl Scout Cookies!
Gift of Caring
Many Girl Scout troops participate in Gift of Caring, a community service project in which girls encourage customers to buy cookies for donation to a non-profit organization selected by the troop. In addition to supporting local non-profits and service organizations like fire and police departments, in 2009 southeast Louisiana Girl Scouts shipped over 14,000 boxes of cookies to military troops serving overseas in the council’s Troops Helping Troops service project.
Thank you for helping girls do great things!
