Brandon sold 5,021 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies.

 

The Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore recognized 220 Girl Scouts who sold 500 or more boxes of Girl Scout Cookies this year during a special May 20 ceremony at iPlay America, Freehold.

This year, the top Girl Scout Cookie seller, Marisa Brandon, a high school sophomore from Howell, sold 5,021 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies. Combined, the top Girl Scouts honored sold 157,000 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies combined; the top 10 sellers alone, listed below, sold more than 23,000 boxes.

In addition to selling Girl Scout Cookies to those who love the delicious treats, Girl Scouts also give customers the option to buy Girl Scout Cookies for donation to local food banks, the military and other worthy causes. On May 21, the Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore donated 11,543 points of Girl Scout Cookies to Fulfill, the former FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties.

The Girl Scout Cookie program is the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program in the world. 100% of the net revenue stays local with the Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore in Monmouth and Ocean counties. This money helps power new, unique and amazing experiences for girls – experiences that broaden their worlds; help them gain essential life skills and entrepreneurial expertise, and prepare them for a lifetime of leadership.

While it’s one of the most visible Girl Scout activities, the Cookie Sale Program is only a small aspect of the Girl Scout experience. All activities are designed to help girls grow into women of courage, confidence and character. Through the Girl Scout Cookie Program, Girl Scouts gain skills that will help them grow into leaders and role models. These skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics help girls become more successful in school and prepares them for the expectations they’ll be expected to meet as adults.
