Billings, MT.—April 22, 2020—Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming (GSMW) donated Girl Scout Cookies to Sheridan Memorial Hospital on April 23rd in an effort to provide a bright spot in the lives of healthcare workers during this pandemic.
Location: Sheridan Memorial Hospital, Downtown Location, 61 S. Gould Street
Date/Time: Thursday, April 23rd at 2:30 PM
“It’s our hope that these 600 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies gives healthcare workers a sweet treat while letting them know they are appreciated and thought of during this challenging time,” according to Kristi Osterlund, Marketing and Communications Manager for GSMW.
The organization will be donating 8,000 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies to 13 major hospitals in Montana and Wyoming this month.
While the movement of Girl Scout Cookies by girls and their families is currently on hold, it’s important to note that the Girl Scout Cookie Program is not canceled. Out of safety for the Girl Scouts, their families, and communities, GSMW suspended all in-person delivery, in-person selling, and all cookie booths effective March 20. Those activities will resume when it is deemed safe for the girls to do so.
Typically, pre-ordered Girl Scout Cookies would have been delivered to customers by now, however, the pandemic has halted that for the time being. For those who pre-ordered Girl Scout Cookies, GSMW assures customers will receive your orders as soon as it is deemed safe for girls to do deliver. At that time, Girl Scout troops will be making additional cookie donations to their Hometown Heroes of choice as well.
For those who want Girl Scout cookies sooner, they can buy online today and have them shipped to their door in about 5 to 10 days—or donate cookies and they’ll be distributed safely to provide comfort to first responders, volunteers, and local causes in need. Girl Scouts encourages the public to: Eat. Share. Show Communities We Care. Folks can contact the Girl Scout in their life or visit www.girlscouts.org/cookiecare and enter their zip code to purchase or donate.
Girl Scouts remains relevant for girls during this time by providing additional activities and virtual programs for girls to learn skills and earn badges. Check out these activities and more at http://www.gsmw.org under Virtual Programs.
