Cookie Overview

The Girl Scout Cookie Program, an integral part of Girl Scouting’s financial literacy initiative for girls ages 5-17, provides finance, marketing and public speaking skills, along with valuable experiences that build girls’ self-confidence and help them develop their own personal leadership style.

We offer many varieties of Girl Scout cookies to satisfy any taste. If you are interested in purchasing Girl Scout cookies and have not been visited by a Girl Scout in your community, please e-mail your contact information (name, address, zip code and phone number) or you can call 336-274-8491 or 800-672-2148, and the council can connect you with a troop in your area. You can also search the cookie booth locator at

Benefits of the Cookie Program

five_skillsThe Girl Scout Cookie Program affects every girl involved in Girl Scouting in one way or another. All of the proceeds generated support Girl Scouting in our area, including the portion that goes directly to the troop selling the products. Proceeds earned are not the property of individual girls — they are distributed according to a council plan to benefit all girls involved in Girl Scouting through program activities, council resources and scholarship funds for girl program participation, service projects and travel.

Girls develop FIVE life skills as a result of participation in the cookie program:

  • Goal Setting
  • Decision Making
  • Money Management
  • People Skills
  • Business Ethics

Operation Sweet Treat

OSTShare a little bit of home with our military troops around the world. We are proud to sponsor our council-wide service project Operation Sweet Treat (OST). Now entering our sixth year, our goal for 2016 is to collect 28,000 packages of Girl Scout cookies and 1,000 letters of encouragement to place in care packages to ship to our brave military men and women serving in the United States, overseas and at local military units.

Last year, we collected 26,815 packages for NCPacksforPatriots. A combined total for all five years is 152,432 packages of cookies and thousands of letters of encouragement!

Donations for OST may be tax- deductible, but consumers should check with their tax professional.
