Because of the pandemic, the Girl Scouts are suspending in-person and cookie-booth sales. But fear not! You can now buy your Thin Mints and Trefoils on-line at Girl Scout Cookie Care.
The site also includes an option for buying cookies to donate to first responders, volunteers, and local causes in need.
I just now bought two boxes of Thin Mints, a box of Trefoils (my original and all-time favorite!) and a box of Samoas (because they go so well dunked in coffee or tea.)
So here’s a chance to both get your cookie fix and help out at the same time. Also, Girl Scout cookies freeze well, so you can buy extra and stock up. Or buy extra and eat them all right now — who am I to judge?
(Once a Girl Scout, always a Girl Scout. I have a fond memory of sitting in the bar at a Lunacon, years ago when there were still Lunacons, singing “Make New Friends, But Keep the Old” with two other writers and an editor, all of us not-so-former-as-we’d-thought Girl Scouts.)
