The Facts About Girl Scout Cookies- Talking Points

During Cookie Season, outside entities with clear agendas may take the opportunity to feed false information about Girl Scouts and the Cookie Program to the public. Please use these talking points (link) in addressing these issues. As always, we encourage you to follow safety guidelines and if you ever feel unsafe in any situation, remove yourself and your girls from the situation by going into a store or leaving a house, close down your booth, or call 911. Approaching girls with salacious materials or aggressive agendas at a cookie booth is not acceptable.
