(Fort Wayne, IN) – Girl Scouts of Northern Indiana-Michiana (GSNI-M) will join councils across the country February 19-21 to participate in National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend 2021, celebrating all the fun, learning and excitement Girl Scouts have experienced selling cookies for over 100 years!

Starting this weekend, Girl Scouts will be selling at in-person cookie booths at Kroger and select Walmart stores. GSNI-M board members will be visiting booths to meet with and encourage girls.

To find a cookie booth location near you, enter your ZIP code in the “Find Cookies!” tool at www.gsnim.org or download the mobile app, Girl Scout Cookie Finder, on your smartphone.

Create moments of joy this winter as you invest in girl leaders of today and the future by purchasing Girl Scout Cookies. Give cookies to a friend, enjoy them yourself, or donate them to a local cause.

Cookies in the GSNI-M council are on sale through March 15 and cost $4 a package, $5 for gluten-free. Here are other contact-free ways to purchase cookies:

  • Through Girl Scouts’ personal “Smart Cookies” platforms.
  • Via GrubHub at this direct link: http://menus.fyi/2556925
  • Email iwantcookies@gsnim.org and we will connect you with a local Girl Scout who will offer you the opportunity to order online and have cookies delivered safely in person or shipped from the baker.
  • The Girl Scouts “Care to Share” option lets you buy cookies and donate them to first responders, volunteers and local causes.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches girls how to think like entrepreneurs as they run their own small businesses and learn skills such as money management, goal-setting, people skills, business ethics and decision making. Girls decide as a troop how to use their cookie proceeds to fund leadership experiences, camp and community service projects.
