Girl Scout Cookie Sales Coming Down the Home Stretch
There are only two weeks left for Girl Scout Cookie booth sales in Central Maryland! The last day of booth sales in the region is November 30.
Since October, Girl Scouts have been busy putting their business plans into action and selling Cookies throughout Maryland. From dressing up in costumes on Halloween, selling to voters outside of polling places on Election Day, to setting up booth sales near tailgating areas on Ravens game days, Girl Scouts have done an excellent job of utilizing marketing and entrepreneurial skills to make their sales goals.
Booth sales have even garnered the attention of local media, with coverage of Troops on the local Patch sites, and Baltimore Jewish Life giving Troop 1726 the opportunity to explain why they dedicate their Sundays to booth sales in front of Tov’s Pizza in Pikesville . “…The funds raised help us offer activities for the girls that help give them a greater view of the world through their creative projects and outdoor activities,” Troop leader Atat Lazar said.

In addition to supporting Girl Scout programs, your purchase of Girl Scout cookies can be donated to support Operation US Mint, the Council’s Gift of Caring, which sends boxes of cookies in care packages for US soldiers serving overseas. A small way to express our gratitude, the program puts Girl Scouts in touch with members of our US military and gives US soldiers a comforting reminder of home. Donations can be made at any booth sale—just ask about the Gift of Caring.
Booth sales will be held throughout the rest of the month, and many will be at shopping locations the night before Thanksgiving and Black Friday. Booth sales near you can be found by using our Cookie Locator at cookielocator.littlebrownie.com. Just enter your zip code and pick a date!
