• Local Girl Scouts Launch Initial Cookie Orders January 5–29, 2022!

    Northern Illinois – Local Girl Scouts have set-up their cookie websites and been busy marketing their products and selling Girl Scout Cookies online since December 13, 2021, for the Early Bird Online Only part of the annual Girl Scout Cookie Program! Now that 2022 is here, Girl Scouts may choose to take cookie orders safely in-person from January 5–29, as they create new ways to connect with customers and offer contactless ordering and delivery door-to-door!
    This year’s delicious cookie lineup features refreshing Thin Mints (vegan!), caramel-y Samoas, peanut butter-stuffed Tagalongs, crunchy Do-si-dos, buttery Trefoils, sweet S’mores, and toffee-chipped Toffee-tastics (gluten free, too!). New this year are Adventurefuls™—an indulgent, brownie-inspired cookie with caramel flavored crème and a hint of sea salt!
    Cookies are on sale for only $5 per package! Girl Scouts can accept orders safely in-person or through Digital Cookie 8.0. This digital platform allows Girl Scouts to take electronic orders for cookies. Customers can now order and pay for cookies online and have the option to have the cookies shipped directly to them (shipping charges apply), have a Girl Scout offer contactless delivery of cookies to their door, or donate cookies (with no additional handling fees).

    During Girl Scout Cookie season, each local Girl Scout sets out to sell delectable cookies while also building entrepreneurial and business skills imperative for leadership and future success. All the net revenue raised—100 percent of it—stays within our northern Illinois area.
    Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois uses cookie earnings to power amazing experiences through their programming, while Girl Scouts and their troops decide how to invest in impactful community projects, personal enrichment opportunities, and more. Skills learned through the cookie program also influence later success as data shows more than half (57 percent) of Girl Scout alumnae in business say the cookie program was beneficial to skills they possess today, such as money management, goal-setting, and public speaking.
