Social distancing put a premature end to the annual Girl Scout cookie season ... or did it?
You can now order your Thin Mints (and other varieties) online, and you can also donate cookies to first responders or health care workers near you!
In a masterful stroke of genius, the Girl Scouts organization quickly mobilized an online ordering system to get their product out to those of us cooped up at home. Just go to the Girl Scout cookie website to see what's available near you.
Interrupting your scrolling and #COVID19 news with a sweet announcement: you can buy Girl Scout Cookies online! Order now and have them shipped to your door—or donate ‘em to comfort to first responders, frontline workers, and local causes in need. https://t.co/v9sl9qmFir— Girl Scouts (@girlscouts) March 27, 2020
New for this year, you can also buy and donate your cookies to a health care team, first responders, or hospital staff in your area. Similar to the donations to troops from previous years, this is a great way to give back to those on the frontlines of the battle against COVID-19.
Hometown heroes everywhere are truly enjoying these sweet treats.
Thank you to @topgirlscouts! The #COVID19 pandemic prevented them from selling all of their cookies this season. So, they’ve graciously donated 159 cases (1,908 boxes) of #GirlScoutCookies to be given to front line health care workers in Lubbock and on our regional campuses. pic.twitter.com/YcPQCJx7Z4— TTUHSC (@TTUHSC) March 30, 2020

Whether you keep them for yourself or donate them, you really can't go wrong with these crowd-pleasing cookies. What quarantine food supply is complete without a box of Thin Mints?
