Coronavirus: Girl Scouts Donate Cookies To Mass. Health Care Workers


BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — As the coronavirus pandemic has put limits on Girl Scout cookie sales, some local troops are donating the treats to front line health care workers.

WBZ-TV reports that more than 800 boxes of cookies to workers at Brigham and Women's Hospital, Lawrence Memorial Hospital, and Tufts Medical Center.

Julia Maggiacomo, a troop leader in Medford, told WBZ-TV that the "virus kind of hit so we weren't allowed to do in-person sales so a lot of these troops had cookies in their house not being able to sell them."

Because of the pandemic, the Girl Scouts have made their cookies available to be ordered or donated online.

The Girl Scouts wrote on their website that as "we navigate our new reality through the COVID-19 pandemic, your support means more than ever to the 1.7 million girls who count on [the cookie program] to fund life-changing programs."
