Girl Scouts of the USA CEO Sylvia Acevedo announced in a statement that, “For 108 years, Girl Scouts has been there in times of crisis and turmoil.”
She also stated, “And today we are stepping forward with new initiatives to help girls, their families, and consumers connect, explore, find comfort, and take action.”
Girl Scouts of USA has also launched a new campaign titled Girl Scouts Cookie Care program. This program, which enables customers to order their cookies, cost $5 per box and can be delivered directly to customers homes.
