The Cookie Program is serious business. Collectively, Edina troops earned almost $40,000.00 from cookie sales in 2012. Yes, $40,000 went right back into our Edina Girl Scout community.
In addition, Edina raised almost $250,000 through cookie sales to support all girl scouts
in MN/WI River Valleys. Edina's
service unit cookie managers, on average, manage $500,000 in
inventory, 800+ girls and 100 adult volunteers in just six weeks.
