Think Outside the Cookie Box

Inside: Delicious cookies for you
Outside: Amazing experiences for girls 

Girl Scouts Heart of Michigan runs two Product Programs throughout the year: They are: Treats & Reads and Girl Scout Cookies. Last year, Girl Scout troops earned nearly $1.4 million in troop proceeds! Girl Scout troops used their troop proceeds to spend the night at the zoo, travel to Chicago, build dog shelters, paint community centers, fly in airplanes, spend the night on a naval ship, and much more. This year’s proceeds can help cover membership fees, new uniforms, and all of the great trips and experiences your Girl Scout envisions.

Here are 3 simple ways you can support Girl Scouts by purchasing or donating Girl Scout Cookies: 

Send us an email at gshom@gshom.org and we will connect you with a local Girl Scout that's trying to reach her goal.
Then she'll send you a link to her online cookie store to order. 

Donate to our local Hometown Heroes, like our deployed members in the military, firefighters, police officers, nurses, shelters and more.

Purchase cookies from the Cookie Cares Campaign to be delivered to your home. Plus, all funds received will go towards our financial assistance fund for all girls to become Girl Scouts.

When you buy a box of delicious Girl Scout Cookies, you help power new, unique, and amazing experiences for every awesome G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader) in your community who sells these purpose-filled treats—SWEET!

Will she help the local animal shelter across town or plant a community garden for friends and neighbors? Cross the country to see the Grand Canyon, or cross an ocean for the travel experience of a lifetime? Go to summer camp, or earn one of Girl Scouting’s highest awards? It’s up to her and her troop—they own their adventure!

That’s the thing. When girls participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, they get more than life-changing experiences and adventure. They also develop essential life skills—goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics—all while soaring in confidence and practicing leadership the Girl Scout way to lift one another up and change the world, together.

What an experience! That’s why we always focus on the interaction between cookie boss and cookie fan, and not cookie parent and cookie fan—this is SO important! Enjoy your favorite cookies even more knowing you helped her do and learn amazing things.
