Funds are used by GSEM for programs for girls, for adult volunteer training and for maintaining three local Girl Scout camps. Troops use their funds for everything from field trips to community service projects.

The cookie program has helped Girl Scouts practice skills such as goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics for more than 80 years.

According to a press release issued by the Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri, five of the top 10 cookies sold in the U.S. are Girl Scout Cookies, and sales of thin mints surpassed Oreos in 2012.
