GIRL SCOUTS TAKE TO THE STREETS FOR NATIONAL GIRL SCOUT COOKIE WEEKEND

Charlotte, N.C. (Feb. 25, 2016) – Since 1935, the Girl Scouts Hornets’ Nest Council has been a member of the century-old Girl Scouts USA, serving nearly 19,000 girls and adults each year in eight North Carolina and South Carolina counties.

Over the course of eight decades, the Hornets’ Nest Council has sold millions of Girl Scout cookie packages and will continue that momentum during National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend Feb. 26-28. The weekend celebration of cookie season is an opportunity for young female entrepreneurs to demonstrate their cookie-selling skills through booth and door-to-door sales as well as the organization’s digital sales efforts.

One hundred percent of the proceeds raised through cookie sales stay local.

Several activities are planned throughout the eight counties.

  • In recognition of the weekend and the Girl Scouts Hornets’ Nest Council’s efforts to teach essential business skills, Charlotte Mayor Jennifer Roberts has proclaimed Feb. 26-28 “Girl Scouts Hornets’ Nest Council Cookie Weekend.” 

  

  • On Friday, Feb. 26, girls will visit local businesses to practice presentation skills and share the mission of the Girl Scouts.
  • Saturday, girls and parents will take to the streets for neighborhood cookie parades and encourage cookie sales in the local community.
  • To complete the weekend, faith-based organizations will welcome Girl Scouts for booth sales.

Girl Scouts that successfully complete one activity during the weekend will receive a National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend 2016 patch.
