Being a Girl Scout is a right of passage of sorts for millions of girls across America. That’s not to mention all the girls who were also Daisies and Brownies. Yes, I admit I was even a Girl Scout- and a Daisy and Brownie. Yes, being a Girl Scout is very American.
Now, with the 2022 Girl Scouts cookie season about to start, DoorDash and the Girl Scouts of America have come together for a new partnership that will enable consumers to order Girl Scout cookies online and have them delivered right to their doorstep.
The Girl Scouts of America have announced that customers in select areas of the U.S., including much of Michigan, would have access to purchase cookies for pickup or delivery via DoorDash.com or the DoorDash app in January. The program will begin on-demand delivery in February. The Girl Scouts’ newest cookie, Adventurfuls (pictured above), will be available, to boot.
“In 2021, Girl Scouts created new ways to be successful in their cookie businesses so they could continue to use their cookie funds to power experiences like camp, troop activities, and service projects in their communities,” interim GSUSA CEO Judith Batty said in a statement.
Batty added, “We are inspired by the resilience and ingenuity of Girl Scouts and cannot wait to see the girl-led innovations in the 2022 Girl Scout Cookie Program. You may see cookies, but we see leadership and adventure in each box.”
Girl Scout Cookie season is recognized nationally from January through April, but that doesn’t mean cookies will necessarily be available in your area, because local timing and product availability varies. Contact your local council for more information.
Here’s how to purchase Girl Scout cookies:
- If you know a registered Girl Scout, contact her to find out how she’s selling cookies in ways that comply with local and state safety protocols.
- To have cookies delivered to your door, head to DoorDash.com or download the app to find out if and when on-demand delivery is available in your area by searching for “Girl Scouts.”
- Starting Feb. 18, enter your zip code into the Girl Scout Cookie Finder at www.girlscoutcookies.org to find cookies near you, purchase cookies from a local troop for delivery or donate cookies to first responders and other good causes.
