Borderland Girl Scouts have 100,000 boxes of unsold cookies due to the pandemic - KVIA

The Cookie Program is our biggest fundraiser of the year. These unsold boxes are more than just a mountain of cookies, it is a loss in new staff members we won't be able to hire, a loss in girl programs, a loss in community engagement, a loss in financial aid we can offer to new members and for camp scholarships.

Girls across West Texas and Southern New Mexico need Girl Scouts now more than ever. And we need your help to purchase or buy-to-donate the more than 100,000 packages we have left due to the pandemic. Come grab some favorite flavors for Father's Day, buy by the case like a real cookie champ, or ask to have cookies donated & delivered to your favorite summer youth program, VBS, or food pantry.

We are open Thursday 8am-6pm, Saturday June 19 8am-12pm (El Paso office), and then M-Th 8am-6pm.

And yes, Thin Mints taste better frozen.

Learn more about our Keynote Speaker, Robyn Manzini below.

Gold Award Girl Scout, Thanks Badge 2 Recipient, and Past President of Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada, Robyn is a third-generation troop leader, and mother of a Gold Award Girl Scout. One of her greatest joys was leading her daughter’s troop from Daisies to GSUSA Lifetime Membership, and nine of these young ladies earned their Gold Awards.

In this role Robyn attends all GSUSA National Board Meetings as well as participates in the interviews and the selection of GSUSA National Board Members.

Under Robyn’s leadership as Board President, Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada’s financial situation rose from a significant loss, to a balanced budget, with an additional 9+ months cash reserve and no debt. Multi-year co-chair of the Dessert Before Dinner Gala, Robyn helped to raise millions of dollars for Girl Scouts of Southern NV.
