To our Girl Scout Cookie Volunteers…
In the years 1944 and 1945, the United States was locked in a World War that left many US citizens making sacrifices of the things that brought them comfort. One of those sacrifices was Girl Scout Cookies. While girls were unable to sell the delicious cookies the country knew and loved, they pivoted, adapted, and still met their goals by selling war bonds and calendars. Throughout history, Girl Scouts have shown their resilience and determination in the face of adversity. This year is no different. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought both health and economic hardship for many, including those in the Chesapeake Bay area.
While Girl Scout Cookies will still be available this season to bring a bit of normalcy and comfort to those who need it, the means by which girls can participate may look a little different. We look to you, our Girl Scout volunteers, to help us navigate this new normal with optimism and flexibility, and to support a safe, successful Cookie Program.
Our staff is committed to providing our volunteers with the resources and support they need to guide their girls to their most successful Cookie Program yet. The first step is this website, dedicated specifically to GSCB Cookie Volunteers, where you can find all of the information that previously lived in a long-form, printed manual. Utilizing this format will allow GSCB to be nimble in our support of girls and volunteers, make changes as we go, and communicate those changes quickly and easily.
As Girl Scout volunteers, you make the Cookie Program possible. Because of your effort, girls across the Delmarva Peninsula have their first experiences in entrepreneurship, leadership, and financial literacy. For that, we can’t thank you enough. We are here for you, and we are here to answer your questions, address your concerns, and be transparent about the unknowns. WE’VE GOT THIS!
Yours in Girl Scouting,
GSCB Product Program team
