Girl Scout Cookie Program is almost here
Published 1:06 pm Thursday, December 10, 2020
Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama, including those in the Covington County area, is excited to kick off the 2020-21 Cookie Program with a new cookie. Joining the lineup this year is the Toast-Yay!, a French toast-inspired cookie dipped in icing and full of flavor in every bite. Also new this year, consumers will be able to order Girl Scout cookies through the Grubhub app and have them delivered directly to them.
Amid challenging world events and a global pandemic this year, Girl Scouts created moments of joy by donating cookies to frontline workers and using the cookie earnings to support their communities. When Girl Scout Cookie season returns on Dec. 27, Toast-Yay! Will give consumers a new way to celebrate, alongside other favorites like Thin Mints and Caramel deLites. Though social distancing measures may keep families and friends apart, cookie customers will be able to share a little happiness and stay connected this season through direct ship and contactless delivery options. This means consumers will again be able to get their hands on the cookies that power unique and amazing experiences for girls with each and every purchase.
In the 2021 season, Girl Scouts in southern Alabama will embrace their entrepreneurial spirit by selling cookies through online platforms and innovative “virtual cookie booths” on social media, with parental supervision. Many girls will offer socially distant or contactless sales and delivery options. If local guidelines allow, in-person booth sales may also be available in certain areas, keeping girls’ safety top priority.
Consumers will also delight in knowing that their cookie purchase is an investment in girl leadership in their own community. With every sale, the Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches girls to think like entrepreneurs as they run their own small businesses and learn skills like goal setting, people skills, and decision-making — which are imperative for any leadership role. Girls decide how to use their portion of the proceeds for unforgettable leadership experiences and community projects, while GSSA depends on the funds to deliver life-changing Girl Scout programming to more than 5,000 girls in southern Alabama.
