Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council (GSSJC) is rallying communities across southeast Texas to provide cookie care packages to thousands oflocal heroes who are on the front line of the COVID-19 response. The local Girl Scouts are asking the public to purchase and donate cookies online through their Cookies4Heroes program. The care packages will be safely delivered to healthcare workers, first responders, grocery store employees and other organizations that are bravely contributing during this difficult time.
Each care package will include a dozen boxes of donated cookies and a handmade card from a Girl Scout. Donations to support Girl Scouts' Cookies4Heroes can be made online at gssjc.org/cookies. Cookie fans who wish to purchase cookies for themselves can also do so online for a limited time.
As always, cookie purchases - whether donated or kept for one's self - directly benefit local Girl Scouts. Girls rely on funds from the annual Cookie Program to attend camp, complete community service projects and participate in life-changing programming. The COVID-19 pandemic hit in the midst of cookie season, preventing the last few weeks of sales and leaving troops across southeast Texas with significant funding shortages.
