GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - You know what time it is when you start seeing these boxes. That's right, it's Girl Scouts cookie time.
We are now officially in the season of a sweet tradition across the country. It may actually be one of the most popular fundraisers around.
From the brand new S'mores cookies to Savannah Smiles, Do-si-dos, and Samoas, these boxes have just been delivered to Ace Moving and Storage in Gulfport. They are about to head out for distribution.
Girl Scouts leaders say the lessons learned through this fundraising tradition are worth every cookie.
"The girls learn so much from the whole process of taking orders, managing their money, and setting goals. Really helps them build that confidence in themselves that they can do whatever they want to do," said Denise Steil.
This year, 38,000 cases are being distributed from this storage center all over South Mississippi, even all the way up to Meridian.
