Almost 1 Million Girl Scout Cookies Sold

By Lori Draz

Not even the supply chain crisis could keep cookie fans away from their favorite treats, and Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore are happy to announce the 2022 Cookie Season was a big success. 

The 7,400 girl-led online and in-person cookie businesses of the Girl Scouts in Monmouth and Ocean counties sold almost 1 million boxes of cookies. 

The girls did face challenges and delays as bakers couldn’t get all the supplies they needed, but that didn’t stop anyone. They sold and sold, and cookie lovers snatched up all they could. To make things even sweeter, 100 percent of the net profits from Girl Scout cookie sales stay in local communities, funding Girl Scout adventures throughout the year.

For more than 100 years, the Girl Scout Cookie Program has been the largest entrepreneurial skill development program in the world. 

“Our girl entrepreneurs and volunteers have overcome many new challenges over the past few years, and this year was no exception,” said C.Y. Wong, director of Product Programs. “We are so grateful to our volunteers, communities and bakers who all stepped up in a big way to help our girl entrepreneurs turn this challenge into an opportunity.”

Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore also donate excess cookie inventory to food pantries in Monmouth and Ocean counties. The donation program allows Girl Scout customers to buy cookies for donation to food pantries, homeless programs and senior centers.

“These donations are sure to put a smile on the faces of so many,” said Girl Scout of the Jersey Shore Interim CEO Heather Coburn.
