An article that appeared in the Island Packet recently about Girl Scout cookies does not affect the local Girl Scout troops and Girl Council, Girl Scouts of Eastern South Carolina, Inc. (GSESC). "While this is an unfortunate incident in North Carolina, we do not want our local Girl Scouts to be affected by what has happened in another area that uses an entirely different cookie baker. Our cookies are different, our recipes are different and our baker is different,” said Victoria Marshall, Director of Development and Marketing. “It is important for our local community to be aware that our baker of choice is Little Brownie Baker and their products have not been compromised. One of our primary concerns is for the satisfaction of the consumer and a key learning component for girls through this activity is customer satisfaction.”

Through the Girl Scout Program, girls develop business and money management skills through activities such as the Girl Scout Cookie sale, the leading business and economic literacy program for girls. The Girl Scout Cookie Sale Activity gives girls the opportunity to earn money for community service projects, council-sponsored girl activities and events, summer camp and/or international travel experiences.

GSESC would like to thank the individuals and corporations who help to support thousands of local Girl Scouts learn valuable life skills by purchasing Girl Scout cookies. You can still support your local Girl Scouts by purchasing packages of cookies at booth sales that will be held through March 11th.
