National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend: Feb. 18-20

On this weekend, Girl Scouts across the nation will band together to speak as a single, powerful voice to raise awareness of the Girl Scout Cookie Program and to drive cookie sales. Make sure you have a cookie booth somewhere in a well-traveled or well-visited location on this weekend. There's also a National GS Cookie Weekend Patch too! Available through The Skyline Shop (in store & online).

Gift of Caring Patch Program

Share the gift of Girl Scout Cookies with your local heroes!
Gift of Caring is a Girl Scouts of Virginia Skyline council-wide service project that allows girls the opportunity to sell virtual cookie packages that go to local first responders and military personnel. The council delivers the products to the organizations directly from the bakery or from one of our warehouses. This gives customers an alternative to not buying for themselves or purchasing an extra box to share with their hometown heroes.

Click here to download and print a flyer to share at you cookie booth sale.

Earn the Gift of Caring Patch: 15+ Cookie  Package Donations
Support our local first responders and military personnel while building a girl’s courage, confidence, and character! Each $5 donation will be used to donate a Cookie Program item to our local heroes. Troops earn proceeds and orders apply to girl’s recognitions.

Girls selling 15 or more donated items will earn the Gift of Caring patch. All Gift of Caring items purchased through GSVSC will be donated to a local first responder or military personnel entity within council boundaries.

History of Girl Scout Cookies

Girl Scout Cookies are an icon of American culture. For over 100 years, Girl Scouts, with the enthusiastic support of their families, have helped ensure the success of the annual sale. From its earliest beginnings to its current popularity, selling Girl Scout Cookies has helped girls have fun, develop valuable life skills, and make their communities a better place. Click here to learn more about the Girl Scout Cookie history!
