Setting the Record Straight about Girl Scout Cookie Misinformation
Cookie season is always a time we receive a lot of press coverage. Generally, the coverage is positive and highlights the valuable impact Girl Scouting and the cookie program has on girls. However, there are groups who use the cookie sale as an opportunity for publicity, by attacking Girl Scouts. We have recently been alerted that an online article is calling for a boycott of Girl Scout cookies based on false information.
First and foremost, the mission of Girl Scout of Western Ohio is to build girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place. Our focus is on building girls’ leadership, not a political agenda.
We find it unfortunate that anyone would boycott the Girl Scouts in a misguided effort to advance their own agenda at the expense of millions of girls throughout the country. Girl Scouts is a non-profit organization with a century-long history of providing girls with the skills they need to become our next generation of leaders.
