Cookie Care shares joy with those fighting COVID-19

This campaign will have Girl Scout Cookies donated to healthcare workers, first responders, food banks, and nursing homes.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala — Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama (GSNCA) announced a new campaign this week, the Girl Scouts Cookie Care. 

This is for the community to share joy with healthcare workers, first responders, and others on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic through the sweet treat of Girl Scout Cookies.

Because of social distancing and COVID-19, local troops have thousands of boxes of unsold Girl Scout Cookies. 

Through the Cookie Care campaign, the community can still support the largest investment in girls annually by sponsoring the remaining Girl Scout Cookie inventory that will be donated in local communities, providing troops an additional philanthropic learning opportunity amidst this new normal. Girl Scout troops will donate those remaining cookies to local food pantries, nursing homes, healthcare workers, and first responders – to assist all those impacted by this pandemic.

“We recognize that we are all in uncertain times, but we also know that our community is incredibly giving and wants to be there for those in need,” said Karen Peterlin, CEO of Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama. “As we all adapt to this new normal, GSNCA continues to provide opportunities for girls to be courageous and to build character, all while making positive changes in the world.”

Consumers can also purchase Girl Scout Cookies for themselves from local Girl Scout troops. They can select for the cookies to be shipped to them, or select girl delivery and arrange a porch drop-off with no direct contact required.
