It's almost cookie time

Best friends Makayla McCartney-Pike and Melanie Gabriel Hastings hope to sell a lot of Girl Scout cookies in 2018 including some that will be sent to soldiers overseas

Burton says the yearly cookie sale also builds up the girls' self-confidence and manners.

It's that time of year, again.

The annual Girl Scouts Cookie season starts in just a few weeks.

Melanie Gabriel Hastings and Makayla McCartney-Pike have been selling Girl Scout cookies together ever since they were Brownies.'One of my favorite parts of selling cookies is hanging out with my best friend' Mela
There's also an option to donate boxes of cookies to soldiers overseas something Melanie has done since she started selling cookies four years ago

Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas counts 15,000 members and covers a large swath, extending to the state lines of Oklahoma and Louisiana and south almost to Waco. Girls and their troops use their cookie proceeds for community service projects; leadership development; camping and outdoor experiences; Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) programs; and so much more. By purchasing cookies, fans of the treats help support the next generation of entrepreneurs, and also invest back in their communities. "The response has been tremendous". There will be Thin Mints, which I think will never be unseated as the most popular cookie. Cookies will be sold through March 4. "This "Cookie Cartel" is run primarily by young girls who lure you in with a good cause story and soon you're addicted to these dangerously delicious things". "The paperwork needs around by March 25". In addition, the group will host various events during National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend from February 23 to 25. In 2017, the program donated 95,000 boxes of cookies.

To find Girl Scout Cookies, connect with a local troop or order online, visit GirlScoutsNebraska.org or call the Cookie Hotline at 877-637-4684.
