Thousands of Girl Scout Cookie Booths Open TOMORROW, February 16, In Oregon and SW Washington
Girl Scout S'mores(TM) cookies back by popular demand!

PORTLAND, OR. -- February 15, 2018 -- Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington (GSOSW) will officially launch the 2018 cookie booth season tomorrow, February 16. Back by popular demand are Girl Scout S'mores(TM)! Cookies can be purchased from more than 30,000 Girl Scout Cookie booths between Friday, February 16 and Sunday, March 11 for $5 per box.

"I'm excited for girls to have this business experience, and put themselves out there," says GSOSW Director of Product Sales Paige Walker. "A Girl Scout Cookie booth is basically a pop-up shop and these young women are entrepreneurs selling an iconic product. As they're talking with community members at booths, they're learning people skills. As they're making decisions about their cookie business, they're practicing skills that prepare them for a successful future."

While the girls ask for the sale, Walker has an ask for customers, too: "When you meet a Girl Scout at a cookie booth, ask her why she is selling cookies!"

COOKIE FINDER
Signature Girl Scout Cookies, including Thin Mints(R), Samoas(R) and Trefoils(R) will be offered among the eight Girl Scout Cookie varieties at all booths throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington. Girl Scout S'mores(TM) cookies and gluten free Toffee-tastic(TM) specialty cookies are available at select cookie booths while supplies last. Customers can find a Girl Scout Cookie booth near their location with the Cookie Finder at girlscoutsosw.org/cookies or use the Girl Scout Cookie Finder app available for iPhone or Android.

THE POWER BEHIND THE GIRL SCOUT COOKIE PROGRAM
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."

KEEPING IT LOCAL
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.

ABOUT THE GIRL SCOUT COOKIE PROGRAM
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: girlscoutcookies.org.

ABOUT GIRL SCOUTS OF OREGON AND SOUTHWEST WASHINGTON

Girl Scout Cookie Bosses Hone Business and Entrepreneurial Skills during Depot Days

PORTLAND, OR. -- February 9, 2018 -- Girl Scout Cookie depot days are some of the most impressive volunteer-driven operations in Oregon and Southwest Washington. More than 1000 volunteers and Girl Scouts throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington help move 1.7 million boxes of Girl Scout Cookies in just six days between February 7 and February 13.

While customers often remember the cookie sellers they see in front of area businesses like Fred Meyer, Safeway-Albertson's, and Wal-Mart, they may never know about the countless hours contributed in support of the girls by volunteers. Volunteers serve in a variety of important roles, including Booth Sales Coordinators, Cookie Inventory Managers, Cookie Rally Organizers, Incentive Organizers, Regional Volunteer Organizers and Warehouse Coordinators.

Girl Scouts that participate during Depot Days gain exposure to these operations and hone business and entrepreneurial skills including communication, customer service, logistics, math, and group management.

"Depot day is the day you really get to see what girls in our area are capable of," says volunteer Katje Johnson Jacobs. "The sheer volume of cookies is amazing, and you see it stacked on pallets--it's a lot. You look back at the empty warehouse at the end of the day and you feel really good about it. We really appreciate all of the volunteer help, because it's hard work."

Girl Scout Cookies are stored at warehouses located in Eugene, Medford, Pendleton, Salem, Tualatin, and Vancouver, as well as fairgrounds locations throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington.
