Last Chance for Girl Scout Cookies | Power Amazing Experiences for Local Girls | Purchase Cookies by March 11 - 03/09/18

This weekend, Girl Scout Cookie booths close up shop for the last time until 2019! Customers can stock up on all of their favorites before they're gone: Thin Mints(R), Samoas(R), Tagalongs(R), Trefoils(R), Do-Si-Dos(R), Savannah Smiles(R), gluten free Toffee-tastic(TM), and Girl Scout S'mores(TM).

The Girl Scout Cookie Program powers amazing experiences for girls year-round, including camping, travel and local community projects. 100 percent of the net revenue earned from cookie sales remains with our local council, so by purchasing cookies consumers help propel Girl Scouts' big ideas into reality while ensuring Girl Scout troops in their community thrive and grow.

To find a nearby Girl Scout Cookie booth, customers can type their ZIP code in to the Cookie Finder at or use the Cookie Finder app available for iPhone or Android. All eight delicious varieties can be purchased for $5 per box from a Girl Scout Cookie booth now through March 11.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches girls the skills they need to become effective leaders, manage finances and gain confidence in handling money--skills that will stay with them for a lifetime. Each box of Girl Scout Cookies sold powers real-life experiences for thousands of local girls.

"We are so grateful to the stores, businesses and organizations that host Girl Scouts at cookie booths," says Walker. "The community partners that provide these spaces are making a valuable investment in girls' entrepreneurial experience."

100 percent of the net revenue earned from cookie sales remains within the local region. Every purchase of Girl Scout Cookies helps provide for new and unique opportunities for local girls including valuable educational experiences that offer lifelong impact. Girl Scout campers in Oregon and Southwest Washington use cookie program proceeds to fund their own camp and travel adventures. And, nearly every Girl Scout troop uses some portion of their cookie proceeds to give back to their local communities.

A little more than a century ago, girls began participating in what would evolve into the largest entrepreneurial training program for girls in the world: the Girl Scout Cookie Program. To learn more about the history of the cookie program, please visit:

Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington serves 13,955 girls in 37 counties with the help of over 10,000 volunteers. The Girl Scout mission is to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. Every opportunity in Girl Scouting, including the Girl Scout Cookie Program, develops essential skills in an all-girl, inclusive, safe environment. For information, please visit:
