BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — If you're looking to get your cookie fix during this coronavirus crisis, you can now do so without leaving your house. Girl Scout cookies can now be ordered or donated online.
"The COVID-19 pandemic hit the U.S. hard in the midst of cookie season, so many girls and councils haven't been able to sell their inventory due to social distancing and other safety precautions," Girls Scouts of the USA said in a statement.
The program, Girl Scout Cookie Care, will let anyone order from a nearby councils' inventory, or from Girl Scouts they know. Virtual cookie booths will also be happening on social media, where members can "make their sales pitch, collect orders, and deliver or donate the cookies when it's again safe," according to the organization.
The organization has also launched the "Girl Scouts at Home" program where "all girls and families — not just Girl Scout members — can access free, self-guided activities from GSUSA's expert programming," according to the organization's statement.
"For 108 years, Girl Scouts has been there in times of crisis and turmoil," Girl Scouts of the USA CEO Sylvia Acevedo said. "And today we are stepping forward with new initiatives to help girls, their families, and consumers connect, explore, find comfort, and take action."
