OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Girl Scout troops have been sidelined by snow and freezing temperatures this season, making it hard to sell their beloved cookies.

To make up for weather that halted door-to-door sales and cookie booths, Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska will extend the cookie program through March 17.

“Record-breaking snow and cold have made it difficult for girls to reach their Girl Scout Cookie Program goals and for eager customers to visit booths to purchase their favorite cookies,” said Denise Moore, Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska Chief Product Program Officer. “Safety of girls is always our top priority and extending the program gives girls the opportunity to pursue their goals in friendlier weather.”

The Girl Scout Cookie program allows girls to boost their enterprising abilities. By purchasing the cookies, consumers support the girls by equipping them with skills in persistence, healthy risk-taking, and confidence to become future leaders in business.

Girl Scout Cookies can only be purchased from a registered Girl Scout. To find cookies near you, visit the Nebraska Girl Scouts website or use the official Girl Scout Cookie Finder app.
