More than 380,000 boxes of Thin Mints, Tag-a-Longs, Samoas and other Girl Scout cookies are being distributed to troops throughout the islands.
"This is a record number for Hawai'i," said Reyna Kaneko, chief marketing officer at Girl Scouts of Hawai'i. "The growing demand for Girl Scout cookies can be attributed to the growing platform for our girls to learn skills and leadership through the program."
"Girls are not only learning marketable skills as our leaders of tomorrow, but they become caring, responsible and trustworthy citizens today," said Kaneko.
Girl Scout Cookies are more than just a popular, iconic snack. Just one purchase gives Girl Scouts opportunities to develop five essential skills of the Girl Scout Cookie Program: Goal Setting, Decision Making, Money Management, People Skills and Business Ethics.
The public can support the nearly 2,600 Girl Scouts in grades K-12 selling at booth site locations across the state through March 24.
Every penny earned from cookie sales in Hawai'i stays in Hawai'i, and, as part of the program, Girl Scout Troops use their cookie funds to further develop leadership skills in girls, so they can do good in communities. Through the Girl Scout Cookie Program girls can dream big, give back to their communities and do more than they ever thought possible!
