Texas Troop Uses Cookie Money to UP the Joy of Reading for Children’s Hospital Patients

There are countless treats to choose from when a craving for sweets kicks in, but there’s something extra special about Girl Scout Cookies that makes them an exceptional choice.

Of course, cookie lovers rejoice when Girl Scout Cookies become available in their community because of their limited availability (cookie season is just three to four months a year) and unique flavors—but that’s not what makes them exceptional. Girl Scout Cookies are SO much more than just delicious treats!

Every time a box is purchased, a customer helps a Girl Scout learn five essential twenty-first-century business and financial skills—goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics.

And that’s not all! Buying Girl Scout Cookies also truly helps girls make the world a better place. Girl Scout Cookie sales fund the amazing work that Girl Scouts do to improve communities nationwide. But don’t just take our word for it. See how a Texas troop used their cookie money to make reading more accessible and fun for patients of the Dell Children’s Medical Center in Austin though their inspiring Take Action project.
