The wait is over… Girl Scout cookies are here!

Local

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) More than 70,000 boxes of Girl Scout cookies have left a warehouse and are headed for homes across the Tri-State.

Teams were loading and unloading cookie boxes Monday at Belmont Moving and Storage from 8 a.m. 3:30 p.m.

The Girl Scouts of Southern Indiana tell us this is the biggest day of the year for them. And while the 70,000 boxes moved out of the warehouse may sound like a lot, we’re told 400,000 boxes are sold across 11 counties in southern Indiana every year.

“That is a ton of money that these troops are bringing in to stay local and support troop activities,” says Lindsey Alvey, “And it helps them do activities like traveling, earning badges, buying uniforms, so it’s really a great time and a great cause for all of our girls.”

If you weren’t able to order a box of cookies, Girl Scouts will be out selling them at several booths across the region until March 8.
