Powered by cookies, Girl Scouts are able to do amazing things! The impact of the Girl Scout Cookie Program lasts far beyond March each year because it allows girls to set goals for themselves and learn how to make their dreams a reality. These are valuable skills that girls can use for the rest of their lives! Using their cookie proceeds, girls are able to fund new adventures, help the community, and so much more. What a sweet deal!
