Girl scouts kick off annual cookie sale

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The annual Girl Scout cookie sale, also known as the Cookies Now event, kicked off Saturday morning.

Around 8:45 a.m., over 600 girl scouts met at Indiana Avenue Baptist Church for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to initiate the start of the cookie sale.

Over 1,200 boxes worth of thin mints, peanut butter patties, shortbread cookies and the new mango creme cookies were all ready to be carted off.

But where does all the money go from the cookie sale?

Veronica Martinez, Resource Dev. Coordinator of Girl Scouts of Texas Oklahoma Plains said, "It's a really great program. The girls use the funds to go to summer camps, to go on troop trips... They use it to fund community service projects that are really important to girl scouts."

The girls are all a part of the Girl Scouts of Texas Oklahoma Plains.
