It’s girl scout cookie season which means, girl scouts from across the country are selling cookies once again.
Due to the pandemic, sales look different now for the typical girl scout. In a normal year, the girls are stationed outside of grocery stores selling cookies and they normally deliver and sell the cookies themselves, going door to door.
Faith Van Gilder, Chief officer of Marketing and Development for the scouts, says that the girls are doing well in the midst of the pandemic.
“Girl Scouts are doing what they’ve been doing for one-hundred and eight years and that’s being flexible and resilient even in tough times.”
VanGilder says that the girls are going forward with their movement online and have shifted very well to the digital world.
Raksha and Laksha Suresh, two girl scouts at Harding’s Friendly Market of Middlebury say that most sales are online this year, which makes things different from previous years.
Each girl has her own personalized link that she can share with her family and friends for online cookie sales.
If you don’t know a girl scout personally, there are other ways to buy and receive cookies, like using the app, girl scout cookie finder, or their website, www.gsnim.org.
The sale runs until March 15th.
