Girl Scouts of the USA Press Room
NEW YORK, NY (February 16, 2022)—Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) will celebrate the annual National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend February 18–20, making it easier than ever for consumers to support their local girl-entrepreneurs. To purchase classic cookies or find a new favorite, customers can support Girl Scouts at socially distanced cookie booths when safe to do so, or through contactless options like cookies for shipment or donation through the Digital Cookie platform, and same day delivery with DoorDash in select markets.
Just in time for National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend, GSUSA and DoorDash have teamed up to produce an exciting look into how the cookies go from your local troop to your stoop, all while supporting the leadership journey of the girls who sell them. Just like the Girl Scouts program, the project was girl-led, with real Girl Scouts starring in each role and inspiring the creative imagery throughout. As viewers will see in the ad, the new national collaboration allows troops to work together as they track, fulfill, and manage orders to offer consumers their favorite Girl Scout Cookies on-demand. As always, all proceeds benefit Girl Scout troops and the local councils, powering amazing experiences for girls and facilitation of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.
National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend marks a time when America’s favorite cookies are widely available across the US and reminds consumers that each purchase supports their local Girl Scouts. And through these funds, Girl Scouts across the country pay for camp, memberships, troop travel, and take action with meaningful community service projects. As consumers open their favorite box of Girl Scout Cookies, they simultaneously open new doors for girls in their communities to explore their leadership potential, make new friends, and make the world a better place.
Consumers who don’t already know a Girl Scout can visit the Girl Scout Cookie Finder or download the app free on iOS and Android devices to find a cookie booth near them, purchase from a local troop for direct shipment, or donate Girl Scout Cookies to local organizations. Through managing sales via the Digital Cookie platform, Girl Scouts are growing their businesses online while learning real-world entrepreneurial skills like money management, goal setting, and customer service.
In true Girl Scout fashion, cookie customers can help make the world a better place by purchasing Thin Mints®, Samoas®/Caramel deLites®, the new AdventurefulsTM, and other favorites—for donation to essential workers, first responders, charities, the military, and more through their council or troop donation programs. And the earnings stay local: girls decide how to allocate their portion of the earnings for community projects, leadership opportunities, and exciting experiences. At the council level, proceeds support facilities like camp, training for volunteers, and exciting programs for girls.
If you don’t already know a Girl Scout, visit www.girlscoutcookies.org to purchase cookies online for direct shipment or donation to local organizations. Girl Scout Cookie season is recognized nationally from January through April, but local timing and product availability varies, so contact your local council for more information.
