Local Girl Scouts will hold their annual Girl Scout cookie sales drive Jan. 18 through Feb. 9.

Delivery will start March 1-15, or as soon as the cookie shipments arrive, according to a news release.

A cookie booth will also be set up at City Market on March 15 for those who did not order but would like to purchase cookies. However, supplies at the booth will be limited, officials said.

This year, the members of Troop 2222 have launched a Gift of Caring project to sell boxes of cookies that will be donated to senior citizens living at the Canyonlands Care Center. In order for troop members to receive the Gift of Caring patch, the troop must sell 48 donated boxes of cookies in addition to the total number of boxes sold last year, according to local troop leader Michele Hill.

“Even if the troop does not reach the necessary 48 donated boxes for the Gift of Caring patch ... the girls will still experience the affects of youth caring to interact with our community’s aging as they mingle with the elderly to whom the cookies will be given,” Hill said.
