Local Girl Scouts Launch Initial Cookie Orders January 6–30, 2021

Northern Illinois – Local Girl Scouts have set-up their cookie websites and been busy marketing their products and selling Girl Scout Cookies online since December 14, 2020, for the Early Bird Online Only part of the annual Girl Scout Cookie Program! Now that 2021 is here, girls may choose to take cookie orders safely in-person from January 6–30, as they create new ways to connect with customers and offer contactless ordering and delivery door-to-door!

This year’s delicious cookie lineup features refreshing Thin Mints (vegan!), caramel-y Samoas, peanut butter-stuffed Tagalongs, crunchy Do-si-dos, buttery Trefoils, sweet S’mores, toffee-chipped Toffee-tastics (gluten free, too!), and more. Cookies are on sale for only $5 per package! Girls can accept orders safely in-person or through Digital Cookie 7.0. This digital platform allows girls to take electronic orders for cookies. Customers can now order and pay for cookies online and have the option to have the cookies shipped directly to them (shipping charges apply), have a Girl Scout offer contactless delivery of cookies to their door, or donate cookies (with no additional handling fees).

During Girl Scout Cookie season, each local Girl Scout sets out to sell delectable cookies while also building entrepreneurial and business skills imperative for leadership and future success. All the net revenue raised—100 percent of it—stays within our northern Illinois area.

Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois uses cookie earnings to power amazing experiences for girls through their programming, while girls and their troops decide how to invest in impactful community projects, personal enrichment opportunities, and more. Skills girls learn in the cookie program also influence later success as data shows more than half (57 percent) of Girl Scout alumnae in business say the cookie program was beneficial to skills they possess today, such as money management, goal-setting, and public speaking.
