Girl Scouts to begin direct cookie sales March 3

Staff Report
Girl Scouts 2023 cookie lineup includes the Raspberry Rally.

Girl Scouts Louisiana East will kick off direct sales of cookies March 3.

Direct, or booth, sales will run for three weekends in March ending March 19 as Girl Scouts and their troops continue to rally their communities to support the world’s largest entrepreneurial program for girls.

“We have had a great start to the 2023 cookie season,” stated Rebecca Pennington, CEO of Girl Scouts Louisiana East. “Our Girl Scouts have been hard at work since Jan. 20, and they are excited to begin the direct sales portion of the program which will continue to empower them with the business skills needed to succeed in the world as they continue to grow and learn.”

If you know a Girl Scout, ask how they are selling cookies via the Smart Cookie online platform for direct shipment or local delivery. Consumers can enter their zip code to purchase cookies online from a local troop for direct shipment or donation to local causes. Consumers can also visit the cookie finder at www.gsle.org/cookies to locate a local booth to purchase cookies.
