Girl Scout Cookies Available For Order Online, For Delivery Or Donation

Friday, March 27, 2020

The COVID-19 (coronavirus) has disrupted the Girl Scout Cookie Program. Public cookie booths were suspended halfway through the booth sales. This disruption means that troops across the 46-county footprint have nearly 300,000 boxes of cookies on hand that need to find a home.

The cookie program allows troops to raise funds for their troop activities, outdoor adventures and community projects. The absence of these funds means that girls will not get to experience these educational and leadership development programs.

On Friday Girls Scouts is launching a digital cookie store that will allow the community to go online and purchase cookies that consumers can donate or purchase for delivery at a later date, when it is safe to do so. This will help local troops in the community move their cookie inventory and fund their Girl Scout experiences for the year.

Community members may also choose to purchase cookies for donation to food banks, first responders, healthcare workers or assisted living facilities. 

Visit girlscoutcsa.org and click on “Digital Cookie” banner
Please choose Have Girl Scout deliver the cookies
Type in your home address or preferred delivery address
Cookies will be delivered as soon as it is safe do so

If businesses would like to buy several cases of cookies to use for customers or employee appreciation, Girl Scouts can accommodate delivering in bulk.
