The 2022 Girl Scout Cookie season is here, a time when consumers in Hampton Roads & Outer Banks can again support girl entrepreneurs by purchasing Girl Scout Cookies and girls can use new sales strategies and technology skills that they honed during the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2022 season began January 8, 2022 in Hampton Roads and Outer Banks. Last year, Girl Scouts in our area sold over 1 million boxes and donated over 50,000 more to the USO.
This season, Girl Scouts are again selling cookies in creative, socially distant, and contact-free ways to keep themselves and their customers safe during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Purchasing Girl Scout Cookies has never been easier. A new national collaboration with DoorDash, the on-demand delivery platform, ensures girls remain at the center of innovation as they offer consumers the option to order cookies on-demand. GSUSA and DoorDash are making it possible for consumers in Hampton Roads, who don’t already know a Girl Scout to purchase cookies from, and on-demand delivery experience or pickup at a nearby booth. As part of the entrepreneurial experience, local Girl Scouts will track and fulfill orders, manage inventory, and more, while partnering with DoorDash’s technology and team.
Many Girl Scouts will also run outdoor cookie booths that follow local, state, and CDC guidelines while still getting everyone’s favorite cookies to their customers. Girl Scouts will also be selling cookies via the Digital Cookie online platform for direct shipment or local delivery. And beginning February 18, consumers can enter their zip code to purchase cookies online from a local troop for direct shipment or donation to local causes.
Adventurefuls joins the whole portfolio of iconic Girl Scout Cookies including favorites like Thin Mints®, Samoas, and Tagalongs®. All purchases of Thin Mints®, Samoas®, Lemon-Ups™, and other Girl Scout Cookie favorites are an investment in girl leadership in the community. With every sale, the Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches girls how to think like entrepreneurs as they run their own small businesses and learn skills like goal setting, people skills, and decision making—which are imperative for any leadership role. Girls decide how to use their proceeds for unforgettable leadership experiences, outdoor adventures, and community service projects.
Girls K-12 who aren’t already Girl Scouts and their caregivers are invited to join us for one of our virtual or in person events to learn more about how Girl Scout’s SOL aligned program can supercharge her life.
