Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England and Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) kicked off a countdown to the 2021 Girl Scout Cookie season this week with the announcement of a new cookie in Warwick and other select areas: Toast-Yay!™, a French toast–inspired cookie dipped in delicious icing and full of flavor in every bite.
Amid challenging world events and a global pandemic this year, Girl Scouts created moments of joy by donating cookies to thank frontline workers and using the cookie earnings to support their communities. When Girl Scout Cookie season returns, Toast-Yay! will give consumers a new way to celebrate joy, alongside other favorites like Thin Mints® and Caramel deLites®. And though social distancing measures may keep families and friends apart, cookie customers will be able to share joy and stay connected this season through a gift box option that ships directly to others via the Smart Cookie online platform.
Cookie purchases are an investment in girl leadership in their own community. With every sale, the Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches girls 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 portion of the proceeds for leadership experiences and community projects, while Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England depends on the funds to deliver Girl Scout programming to girls across southern New England.
As the COVID-19 pandemic became widespread during the 2020 cookie season, many girl entrepreneurs quickly changed their emphasis to virtual sales as they experienced the same challenges as other businesses. GSUSA also offered a new national online platform, Girl Scouts Cookie Care that enabled customers to safely order cookies for home delivery or to donate cookies to first responders, volunteers, and local causes.
Many girls will offer socially distant or contactless sales and delivery options. If local guidelines allow, in-person sales may also be available in certain areas, keeping girls’ safety top priority.
