How the Cookie Crumbles

Each package of Girl Scout Cookies costs $5.00. After the cost of cookies, all proceeds stay local. Your purchase of Girl Scout cookies benefits girls, Girl Scout troops and the local council to fund programs and support volunteers who help girls become Go-getters, Innovators, Risk-takers and Leaders right here in Northern and Central California.
