Girl Scouts Give Back Week (GSGB) | May 2-6, 2022
With Girl Scouts Give Back you can support two causes at the same time: a girl-led cookie business and various worthy organizations across our region.
What is Girl Scouts Give Back?
When customers donate money to troops or Girl Scouts during the cookie program, these funds are used to pay for cookies for our Girl Scouts Give Back program. All monetary donations during the cookie program should be used to purchase cookies for donations.
What Happens During Girl Scouts Give Back Week?
Girl Scouts give back thousands of boxes of cookies to community organizations throughout our region. This includes hospitals, universities, veteran’s groups, food banks and more!
Who Gets to Help?
Cookies are donated in five different regions across the council. Product Program staff will select the two troops with the most donations from each region to participate in the donation of the cookies. These troops get to experience a whole new side of the cookie program – one of giving back to a community that has supported their cookie program. Girls help unload the truck, learn about the organizations they are giving to, receive a tour, and earn a patch.
