Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois has announced annual cookie sales have begun.
In a news release, the scouts said booths are starting to pop up across the region. You can find the upcoming location by zip code at gsofsi.org/findcookies.
The organization is also this year asking patrons to consider buying an extra box for its Hometown Heroes program, which supports active military personnel, local first responders, and other non-profit organizations.
“We’re very excited that Girl Scout Cookie season is here,” said Katie Grayling, Director of Product Programs for Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois. “The public’s continued support every year is much appreciated. Not only are they getting delicious cookies, but they are also empowering girls to chase their dreams.”
According to a zip code search on the Girl Scout’s website, cookie lovers in Troy will get their first chance at some boxes on Jan. 21-22 at Casey’s at 440 Edwardsville Road.
Listing show cookies will also be available Jan. 22 at 4-0 Kelley’s at 804 South Main, Dunkin Donuts at 819 Edwardsville Rd, Pete’s Market at 523 Troy Plaza and Travel Centers of America at 819 Edwardsville Rd.
Those locations will also be hosting Girl Scout cookie booths the following weekend and on several dates in February. Cookie booths will also be held this weekend at Lowe’s WalMart and Sam’s Club in Glen Carbon, according to the Girl Scouts website.
The organization states in the release that every Girl Scout Cookie purchase fuels local Girl Scouts’ adventures throughout the year: exploring what interests them, discovering their passions, and taking action on issues they care about.
“Whether they’re using their STEM skills to solve a problem, working with city council to help their community, having a courageous outdoor experience or starting an innovative nonprofit, Girl Scouts build a better future for themselves and the world,” the release reads.
