Who wants Girl Guide cookies? Girl Guides on Sunshine Coast will be selling their cookies at various locations.
At only $5 a box (tax included), Girl Guide cookies are a delicious way to make a difference in the lives of girls on the Sunshine Coast and across the country. If cookies are not on your food plan, consider buying a box and donate it to the local food bank.
Cookies went on sale March 27 and will be available through April by individual girls.
Each box of cookies sold supports effective and meaningful Girl Guide programs and community based activities offering girls opportunities to discover new interests, form lasting friendships and develop leadership and life skills through experience, challenge and adventure.
This important fundraiser helps to provide girls with the tools they need to be confident, courageous and resourceful – capable of achieving greatness in every area of their life.
There will be cookies on sale April 1 at IGA in Gibsons between 10am and 2pm.
April 8 is the nationwide cookie blitz and they will be sold between 10am and 4pm at various locations on the Sunshine Coast, including Sunny Crest Mall and IGA in Gibsons, IGA in Wilson Creek and Trail Bay Mall in Sechelt.
Tiffany Vellios, Commissioner, of the Girl Guide Tetrahedron District says: “Girl Guide cookies are a tasty Canadian tradition. When you buy a box of Girl Guide cookies, you’re buying more than just a cookie. Cookie sales help over 100 girls on the Sunshine Coast from Gibsons to Pender Harbour try exciting activities, develop leadership skills and participate in dynamic community service projects.”
The Girl Guide cookie tradition stared in 1927, when a Guide leader in Regina baked cookies for her girls to sell as a simple way to raise money for uniforms and camping equipment.
Today, Canadians eagerly await the arrival of classic vanilla and chocolate cookies each spring and chocolatey mint cookies every fall. Over 4.4 million boxes of Girl Guide cookies are sold each year across Canada.
