Local Girl Scouts prepare for National Cookie Weekend
ROCKFORD (WREX) -
19,000 boxes of cookies were brought in Saturday as the Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois prepare for cookie delivery.
The girls are getting ready for National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend and the kick-off of booth sales, which is Feb. 26-28. While some troops have already been delivering their cookie orders, they are still trying to sell more cookies at these booth sales.
"Girl Scouts have a booth either inside or outside of a building, and then people can just come up and buy Girl Scout cookies and then the cookies sales get split among the girls," said Kaitlyn Tesdorff, a Girl Scout emissary and a Cadet Scout.
To find local booth sale locations, the Girl Scout Cookie Finder app can be downloaded for iPhone or Android smart phones.
