Each year the Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England selects a local organization to be the recipient of our annual Cookie Program Community Service Project. The 2021 recipient will be the Providence Animal Rescue League (PARL). The Providence Animal Rescue League is a nonprofit organization dedicated to pets and the people who love them! Programs include cat, dog, and small animal adoptions and low-cost spay/neuter, pet food assistance, and vaccine services for community pets. Your donations will ensure that vital animal care and community support programs can continue. Girls and troops can choose to donate a portion of their cookie proceeds to support PARL. It is also a great opportunity for girls to learn about the importance of giving back to their communities! Check out this great video about this year's GSSNE and Providence Animal Rescue League partnership!
Safety is top-of-mind every year for our girls and volunteers. As always, girl participation is not mandatory. This booth grid is here to help parents/guardians, volunteers, girls, and families, understand how sales and cookie booths will work for the 2021 cookie season. Due to ever-changing conditions and comfort levels differing person-to-person, we’ve made updates to the way booths will work this year. Girls are able to participate fully online, do a hybrid of in-person and online, or do a combination of all the options. If booths aren’t a good fit, just remember girls can fully participate online and/or with contactless porch drop-offs.
You can find customizable business cards and door hangers under the "Fun Things" drop-down on this page, these will help girls connect with their customers in a safe way. We completely understand girls or parent/caregivers not wanting to participate in-person this year, and we hope some of these selling options will work for your family.
