For many years, Girl Scouts across the country have used Girl Scout Cookies to show their appreciation for those in uniform or to support those in need. Customers are given the opportunity to purchase cookies to donate to our Gift of Caring Program with Black Diamond. Girl Scouts of Black Diamond has chosen the West Virginia Gold Star Mothers Association and the West Virginia National Guard Foundation as the council-sponsored organizations. Some troops may choose their own charitable organization within their community.
The Girl Scouts of Black Diamond partners with the West Virginia Gold Star Mothers Association, a service organization of women who have lost sons and daughters in the military, and the West Virginia National Guard Foundation to distribute cookies to the military. They distribute to VA hospitals, nursing homes, disabled and paralyzed veterans and more.
During the Girl Scout Cookie Program, purchase boxes of cookies and ask to have them donated to the Gift of Caring Program. Consider allowing Girl Scouts to set up booths or sell cookies at your place of business.
The cost of a donation starts at $5 a box or $60 a case.
Girls will start selling door to door in January. Booth sales will begin in February and run through April.
Customers who do not want to purchase cookies for themselves may choose to support Gift of Caring in Girl Scouts of Black Diamond Council, or they may choose to Buy 1, Give 1 to help a solider!
