Girl Scouts selling cookies

Some 38,616 boxes arrived in McMinnville Friday, ready for local distribution, said Jeannie Campbell, who oversees the cookie fundraiser in Yamhill County.

Cookie sales support Girl Scout programs that teach life and business skills, according to the international organization’s website. The gluten-free Toffee-tastic variety costs $5 a box, the other varieties $4.

Some of the cookies were pre-ordered. Girls started delivering them over the weekend.

This Friday, they will begin selling cookies at tables set up in front of local stores. Campbell said sales will continue on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through March 13.

In McMinnville, girls are planning to set up stations at Roth’s, Safeway, Albertsons, Walmart, Wilco and Lowe’s. A station also will be set up the Friday evening of Feb. 19 at McMinnville High School.

In Newberg, stations are scheduled at Fred Meyer, Ace Hardware and the Chapters book store; in Dayton, at the he Block House Cafe; and in Sheridan and Willamina, at local Select Markets. Times vary, but sales generally run Friday evenings and most of the day Saturday and Sunday.
