Girl Scouts Western Oklahoma will be out at three metro Boot Barn locations, selling cookies through its Do-Si-Do drive-thru, Friday and Saturday.
This year, staff and volunteers will be handling the purchases. The organization said they’ll wear masks and use hand sanitizer, while the scouts hold signs and cheer on customers.
The CEO of Western Oklahoma Girl Scouts, Shannon Evers, said cookie sales make up 60-75% of it’s revenue. It’s one of the largest girl-led businesses in the world.
“Obviously having our sales cut short had a pretty big impact on our budget this year,” said Evers. “We have about half a million dollars inventory in cookies, that we had to pay for but haven’t been able to sell.”
Evers said every dollar earned from cookie sales helps the organization provide quality experiences so these girls can become the leaders of tomorrow. That includes entrepreneurial skills, like building their own online stores to sell cookies.
“They essentially create their own online store and are able to sell their cookies digitally.”
Girl Scouts will be out from 11:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m. selling the cookies. The cookies start at $5.00 a box at the following locations.
