Cookie Season is Coming Feb 10th


Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council is excited to announce  the official start of Girl Scout cookie season on Feb. 10, 2024, and fanatics can expect to see cookie booths in their communities on Feb. 16. 

This year, GSSJC is staying true to tradition and reintroducing iconic cookie flavors, such as  Adventurefuls®, Toast-Yay!®, Lemonades®, Trefoils®, Thin Mints®, Peanut Butter Patties®,  Caramel deLites®, Peanut Butter Sandwich, and Caramel Chocolate Chip. 

“Launching into a new Girl Scout cookie season is like opening a door to endless possibilities for  our girls and their troops,” said Mary Vitek, CEO of GSSJC. “Through the cookie program, girls  learn essential life skills, develop confidence, and build a foundation for future success.” 

Although the program this year includes a price increase at $6 per box, troops will receive a  20% increase over last year’s sale proceeds, allowing them to fund trips, camp outings,  and other Girl Scouting activities. All proceeds from Girl Scout cookies play a crucial role in  supporting various initiatives: 

Covering Program Costs:

The proceeds contribute to covering the costs of running the  Girl Scout Cookie Program, including the production of cookies, materials, and logistics.

Empowering Community Projects:

Funds generated from cookie sales are dedicated  to supporting Take Action projects for the community and facilitating girl-led adventures  for troops. 

Investing in Girl Scout Programs:

The council allocates resources to provide Girl Scout  programs in STEM, the outdoors, life skills, entrepreneurship, camps, and leadership  training. 

Local Impact:

A significant 60% of the proceeds directly support local programs, such  as horseback riding, STEM initiatives, and camp experiences, enriching the lives of girls  within the San Jacinto Council. 

Cookie Program and Vendor Costs:

Approximately 21% of the proceeds cover the  costs associated with the cookie program and vendor expenses. 

Troop Rewards and Recognitions:

The remaining 19% is allocated to troop proceeds  and girl recognitions, ensuring that the hard work and dedication of each Girl Scout are  acknowledged and rewarded. 

The 2024 program runs through March 24. For more information regarding Girl Scouts cookies,  please visit https://www.gssjc.org/en/cookies.html.
