It’s Time!

Cookie Order-Taking Begins

and NEW This Year = Cookie Gift Certificates!!

Today, Girl Scouts of Virginia Skyline Council launches the 2020-21 Girl Scout Cookie season. Girl Scouts will start taking orders for cookies that will be delivered in mid-January.

This cookie season, Virginia Skyline Council has something NEW to offer during the holidays: Cookie Gift Certificates. Gift certificates can be purchased from December 14, 2020, through January 14, 2021, by emailing info@gsvsc.org or calling 540-777-5100.

To keep everyone safe during these challenging times, we are changing things up this year. When the cookies arrive to our region in mid-January, Girl Scouts will be delivering them in different ways: masked drop-offs to your door, delivery service (working out the details right now with a national food delivery service), cookie booth drive-thrus, and online ordering with shipping via Digital Cookie. Girl Scouts are blazing new trails with the delivery and sales of our famously beloved cookies. We’ll make sure you get your fave cookies in a safe manner!

The Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches girls about entrepreneurship as they have fun learning essential skills like money management, public speaking, and decision making, which set them up for a lifetime of success. Nine in ten Girl Scouts say the cookie program has built their entrepreneurship skills and their interest in pursuing entrepreneurship as a career path—so every cookie purchase is an investment in the world-changing business leaders of tomorrow. What’s more, each and every purchase stays local to power amazing experiences and leadership opportunities for girls in communities across the United States.

Girl Scout Cookies are $5 a box. Need help finding a Girl Scout to take your order? Contact the Girl Scouts at info@gsvsc.org or 540-777-5100.
