For more than 100 years, there has been one group of little women on the front lines always finding a way to make a big impact. Girl Scouts. While they’re especially known for selling baked goods outside grocery stores during a brief six- to eight-week Girl Scout Cookie season, the coronavirus pandemic has once again changed a few plans.
Girl Scouts of the USA has suspended in-person activities and events, including cookie booths, for safety precautions. However, the youth organization found a way to not only continue its delicious legacy but also spread the joy to first responders, volunteers and local causes.
