If you were worried that the coronavirus pandemic would mean no Girl Scout cookies in 2020, we have some good news.
Like so many other things these days, the cookies are simply going online.
The Girl Scouts explain how it works:
“Support girls’ continued success in the wake of COVID-19 through Digital Cookie and Smart Cookie online orders shipped to your door without interruption. Or donate cookies online, and we’ll distribute them safely to provide comfort to first responders, frontline volunteers, and local causes in need.”
As you order these beloved treats — whether for yourself, or for others — the Girl Scouts remind you that you’re also helping out the girls who are part of the Girl Scout program.
The girls themselves decide what to do with their earnings, and all the money stays local, according to the Girl Scouts.
