Girl Scouts of Eastern MA Launch the Start of the 2024 Cookie Season

February 26, 2024  | 

Waltham, MA — Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts kicked off the 2024 Girl Scout Cookie season as Girl Scouts and their troops rally the community to support the world’s largest entrepreneurial program for girls. The annual cookie program will run through Friday, March 8th.

Consumers can support local Girl Scouts by purchasing their favorite cookie flavors including Thin Mints®, Caramel deLites®, Peanut Butter Patties®, Adventurefuls®, Peanut Butter Sandwich, Lemonades®, Trefoils®, Caramel Chocolate Chip (gluten-free and peanut-free), and Toast-Yay! ®.

“This is my favorite time of the year! I love seeing our Girl Scouts out developing their sales pitches to sell Girl Scout Cookies,” stated Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts CEO Barbara Fortier. “Our Girl Scout Cookie program provides our youth with the opportunity to build their entrepreneurial passions through customer service, marketing and sales skills. Many of our alum credit the Girl Scout Cookie Program as a stepping stone into leadership positions. When you purchase a box of cookies you are unboxing an array of opportunities for our Girl Scouts.”

The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the world’s largest entrepreneurial program for Girl Scouts. As a result, Girl Scouts obtain limitless barrier-breaking futures outside the box with transferable life skills. Girl Scouts can earn a variety of badges and awards to develop valuable business skills including Cookie Business badges, Financial Literacy badges, Cookie Entrepreneur Family pins and Entrepreneur badges.

Girl Scout Cookies are $6 per package. There are many ways to support the Girl Scout Cookie program this season:

  • If you know a registered Girl Scout, ask how you can purchase Girl Scout Cookies from them to support their goals.
  • If you don’t know a Girl Scout, visit to find a cookie booth (pop-up shop) near you to purchase cookies from a local Girl Scout troop, or to connect with a local troop’s online cookie shop to purchase cookies for a donation or shipment.
  • Customers can make a purchase in-person or online and designate their purchase through our Cookie Share Donation program to benefit first responders and healthcare professionals, the military and veterans’ services organizations, local food pantries, and more.
  • You can also text COOKIES to 59618 to stay informed about how to purchase Girl Scout Cookies and other exciting Girl Scout news. Learn more about the Terms and Conditions and the SMS Privacy Policy.
