GSKWR Celebrates National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend

Look out Kentucky, the Girl Scouts of Kentucky’s Wilderness Road (GSKWR) and Girl Scouts of the USA are coming together to celebrate National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, February 19, 20 and 21!

Help support your local girl scouts this weekend by purchasing your favorite flavors from local Girl Scouts at participating Kentucky Walmart locations or contact-free through Grubhub. National Cookie Weekend honors the achievements of young girl entrepreneurs across the U.S. and Kentucky. The Girl Scout Cookie Program helps to empower Kentucky Girl Scouts to successfully run their own cookie program and market their businesses online with the Digital Cookie platform, plus, it provides unlimited growth opportunities including outdoor adventures and space science exploration. Over 80 percent of the revenue from the Girl Scout Cookie program stays in Kentucky for GSKWR’s annual operating budget!

Ways to Buy and Support Your Kentucky Girl Scouts 

Ready to place your order? Here’s how:

-Order contact-free through Grubhub; this weekend only, Gubhub is offering a buy-one-get-one free cookie offer with any food order! Families in Northern Kentucky can order their  Girl Scout Cookies for pickup or delivery at grubhub.com/food/girl_scouts or through the Grubhub App from 4- 7  p.m. on National Cookie Weekend. Even cooler, Grubhub is waiving all fees to ensure a fast and feasible delivery option feasible without reducing Kentucky Girl Scout troops’ and councils’ cookie program proceeds.  

-Head to participating Walmart or Kroger stores in Kentucky where the Kentucky Girl Scout troops will have safe, socially-distant cookie booths set up.

-As for another contact-free option, if you don’t already know a Girl Scout and live in Kentucky or Greater Cincinnati, you can also purchase Girl Scout Cookies online to be shipped straight to your door. Simply enter your zip code into the Kentucky Girl Scout Cookie Finder to find a local troop to purchase from through the Digital Cookie platform or you can choose to donate to local organizations.

-Or order through the Smart Cookies Mobile App – a digital tool that allows girls to sell cookies and track progress from their mobile devices! Looking for a local Girl Scout to purchase from?

Fun fact: Did you know that The Toast Yay! cookie, is only available locally from Kentucky Girl Scouts! What is it? A decadent French toast–inspired cookie dipped in icing and packed with an unforgettable rich flavor.
