NASHVILLE, Tenn. --** The Titans are supporting the largest girl-led business in the world – the Girl Scout Cookie Program.
This "small business" teaches girls valuable lifelong skills in goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics. There is so much more to Girl Scout Cookies than what's inside the box. When a Girl Scout sells cookies, she is building a lifetime of self-confidence. The cookie program allows her to run her own small business and work toward both her personal and business goals.
"We are thrilled to have the Titans support our cookie program," said Cathy Ratliff, director of product programs at Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee. "The support of our community members goes a long way in helping our cookie bosses learn lifelong skills and reach their goals."
Titans mascot T-Rac stopped by the Girl Scouts offices this week to eat some of his favorite cookies and help Girl Scouts gear up for an incredible cookie season.
This year, the Samoa's cookie is celebrating its 40th anniversary and there are two new cookie varieties. Rah-Rah Raisins and Toffee-tastic will make their debut in Middle Tennessee. Rah-Rah Raisins takes a delicious spin from the classic oatmeal raisin cookie with the addition of Greek yogurt-flavored chunks. Toffee-tastic is a gluten-free cookie that is buttery and packed with golden toffee bits.
All proceeds generated from the cookie program stay in the local Girl Scout council to support girls in the Middle Tennessee. Troops determine how they want to spend their proceeds and often use them to go to summer camp, take a trip or learn a new skill.
Girl Scouts are currently taking cookie pre-orders and you will see them at your favorite retailer beginning February 8. To find a cookie booth near you, visit www.girlscoutcookies.org.
