Every year, girl scouts from across the country sell cookies in an effort to learn skills like money management and goal setting.
Here in Tucson, there are more than 14,000 girls (ages 5-17) who are part of the Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona. The non-profit organization aims to be a place “where girls discover the fun, friendship, and power of working together.” They seek to accomplish this through field trips, sports, skill-building clinics, community service projects, cultural exchanges, and environmental stewardships.
If you would like to purchase a box (or boxes!) of cookies to support the troops and/or satisfy your sweet tooth, you can search for a sale in your zip code.
You can also enter to WIN a complete “super six” set – one box of each flavor! See below.
