Girl Scouts of Louisiana - Pines to the Gulf



Cookies & More

Girl Scout Product Sales programs are so much more than another fundraiser.  The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the largest girl-led business in the world and generates immeasurable benefits for girls, our council and the community.

Through both the Cookie Program and the Fall Product Sale, girls set goals to support their chosen activities for the year, to fund community service and leadership projects, to participate in outdoor adventures, and to travel to destinations near and far. 

The five skills girls learn through the Girl Scout Cookie Program and the Fall Product Programs are important ingredients in the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.Through the Girl Scout Cookie Program and the Fall Product Program girls develop five essential skills that will help them develop into leaders in their own lives, leaders in business and leaders in the world.
