Gluten Free? Yes!
Our council is piloting a Gluten Free Cookie for ABC Bakers called Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Shortbread. Cost: $5*.
Since this is a pilot project, not every Girl Scout will have this variety in her stock. The supply is limited to cookies troops currently have. If you need assistance, 320 252-2952 | 800 955-6032.
*The Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Shortbread has a different retail than the other varieties.
Have You Heard of Cookie Share?
Support Girl Scouting and another local organization by purchasing cookies to donate through the Cookie Share program.
Simply make a "cash" donation equal to the number of packages you'd like donated. For instance, $4.00, $8.00, $12.00, etc. This donation will help purchase Girl Scout Cookies from the troop that will be donated to a local organization chosen by the troop.
Customers may also contact Lakes and Pines Council Product Sales Staff directly to send in a donation for this program at:
Valerie (218) 302-3185 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Maureen (320) 247-4571 or email@example.com
St. Cloud/Waite Park and surrounding:
Jess (320) 247-4563 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your support of Girl Scouting and helping to build girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.
Are purchases of Girl Scout Cookies tax deductible?
According to the Internal Revenue Service and Girl Scouts of the USA, there are two possiblities:
1. Customers accept cookies: If individuals buy cookies for personal consumption, they have purchased a product at a a fair market value. For this reason, no part of the price of a package of Girl Scout Cookies is tax deductible.
2. Customers leave cookies with the Girl Scouts: Those customers who do not receive any Girl Scout Cookies, but purchase a package for the Cookie Share Program, do not benefit directly from paying for the cookies. These individuals may treat the purchase prices as a charitable contribution as the Girl Scout will donate these cookies to a charity of her choice.
