Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England Kicks Off 2022 Girl Scout Cookie Season
Girl Scouts in Southeastern New England are now selling the new brownie inspired AdventurefulsTM cookie alongside other favorites, and each purchase powers amazing adventures for them.
[Warwick, RI—January 11, 2022]—Today Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England (GSSNE) and Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) kicked off the 2022 Girl Scout Cookie Season. Consumers can support local Girl Scout entrepreneurs by purchasing their favorite cookies. Girl Scouts are now selling the new Adventurefuls, an indulgent brownie-inspired cookie with caramel-flavored crème and a hint of sea salt, and an incredible taste of adventure in every bite. Adventurefuls joins the whole portfolio of iconic Girl Scout Cookies including favorites like Thin Mints®, Caramel deLites®, and Peanut Butter Patties®.
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. Many Girl Scouts will run outdoor cookie booths that follow local, state, and CDC guidelines while still getting everyone’s favorite cookies to their customers. If you know a Girl Scout, ask how she’s selling cookies via the Smart Cookies 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.
On-Demand Delivery Exclusively Powered by DoorDash
Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England is participating in a national collaboration with online food ordering and delivery platform DoorDash, so girls have an additional way to facilitate contact-free cookie orders. Cookies will be deliverable in Warwick and the surrounding areas through DoorDash.com or the DoorDash app. As part of the entrepreneurial experience, local Girl Scouts will track and fulfill orders, manage inventory, and more, partnering with DoorDash’s technology and team. As always, the proceeds benefit local troops and the GSSNE council while providing another innovative way to safely run the cookie program. Consumers will be able to order cookies through DoorDash beginning in early February.
Every Girl Scout Cookie purchase fuels local Girl Scouts’ adventures throughout the year: exploring what interests them, discovering their passions, and taking action on issues they care about. Whether they’re using their STEM skills to solve a problem, changing a law to help their community, having a courageous outdoor experience, or starting an innovative nonprofit, Girl Scouts build a better future for themselves and the world.
“My deep gratitude is extended to every customer who chooses to fuel the dreams of our local Girl Scout entrepreneurs—thank you,” said GSSNE CEO, Pam Hyland. Ginger Lallo, Senior Director of Advancement added, “The Girl Scout Cookie Program is a tradition that has lasted over 100 years and the cookies are more than a tasty treat. Each package that you buy helps Girl Scouts earn Cookie Business Badges, while providing them with amazing opportunities and skills that will last a lifetime.”
