The Cookies are Coming!

Girl Scout Cookie Season is beginning for some councils tonight!

In New York, RocNow reports that The official Girl Scouts of Western New York cookie season will start at 7 p.m. tonight with a kick-off in Henrietta, Batavia, Buffalo and Jamestown. Girl scouts and volunteers at the four locations will send out a text message blast about the cookie sale program to friends, family and prospective customers as part of a synchronized ‘Cookie Click Off’. The CEO of the Girl Scouts of Western New York, Cindy L. Odom, said the Click Off will expose girls to the use of texting, the internet and social media as powerful sales communication tools. The cookie sale strives to give girls an opportunity to be entrepreneurs, according to Odom. The cookie season will run till Dec. 5 this year.
