Cookie Sale Service Unit

The Girl Scout Cookie Program for Girl Scouts of Virginia Skyline Council runs from January 1 to March 31, 2019.

For Cookie Service Units

Welcome Service Unit Cookie Team!
Thanks to our Girl Scout service units the cookie sale runs smoothly for girls and their troops. You play a big supporting role in the largest girl-led business in the world! A troop receives $1.00/box of cookies sold. Direct proceeds to troops in Virginia Skyline Council totaled $450,000 last year! Thanks for all your hard work & dedication.
