The pandemic changed almost everything this past year, including everyone’s fave time of the year, Girl Scout Cookie season! With so many girls staying safe, cookie sales were far below their goal, which means one thing: lots of leftover cookies.
The Girl Scouts currently have 15 million boxes of cookies that have not been sold, most of which are at Louisville, Kentucky-based Little Brownie Bakers and Brownsburg, Indiana-based ABC Bakers. The famed cookies have a 12 months shelf-life which means there is still plenty of time to get those delightful treats into loving hands.
In a statement from the Girl Scouts of America, the organization shares “The outpouring of support for the cookie program has been overwhelming, so we’ve launched a donation-only site to support the Girl Scout Movement after an unprecedented year. Please visit Digital Cookie if you want to support the cookie program and donate cookies to first responders, food banks and other worthy causes.”
On the website, you can enter how many boxes you’d like to donate, which are still a steal at $5 a box. There’s no sweeter gift that a box of Girl Scout cookies!
