The Girl Scouts of Virginia Skyline Council launched its 2020-21 Girl Scout Cookie season Monday, Dec. 14. Girl Scouts are taking orders for cookies that will be delivered in mid-January.
This cookie season, the council has something new to offer during the holidays in the spirit of keeping everyone safe during these challenging times: cookie gift certificates. Gift certificates can be purchased through Jan. 14, 2021, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 540-777-5100.
In the name of safety, the council is also making other changes in the way cookie sales are handled. When the cookies arrive in the region in mid-January, Girl Scouts will be delivering them in different ways: masked drop-offs to the customer’s door; cookie booth drive-thrus; online ordering with shipping via Digital Cookie; cookie delivery service (The details are being worked out work with a national food delivery service. They will be announced on Jan. 12.); and voice-activated sales via Echo home systems.
In these different times, the Girl Scouts are responding with creative ways to manage and sell the famously beloved cookies. The council’s scouts will make sure customers get their favorite cookies in a safe manner.
Girl Scout cookies are $5 a box. To locate a Girl Scout to take an order, contact the girl scouts at email@example.com or 540-777-5100.
The Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches girls about entrepreneurship as they have fun learning essential skills like money management, public speaking, and decision making, which set them up for a lifetime of success. Nine in ten Girl Scouts say the cookie program has built their entrepreneurship skills and their interest in pursuing entrepreneurship as a career path, so every cookie purchase is an investment in the world-changing business leaders of tomorrow. Every purchase stays local to power amazing experiences and leadership opportunities for girls in communities across the United States.
