WARWICK, RI — If you missed your yearly Girl Scout cookie fix, the Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England Headquarters and local Girl Scout troops have you covered with their Girl Scout Cookie Drive-Thru at 500 Greenwich Ave.

Customers will be able to drive up and purchase cookies in a contactless transaction; cash, credit, and Venmo are accepted. If you need to re-familiarize yourself with the cookie options, you can visit the Girl Scout Cookie Sale page.

All nine varieties will be sold at $5 a box, except for the Gluten-Free cookie, which is $6 (limited quantities available).

The booth is open until 4 p.m. today (Saturday) and on the following days:

  • Sunday, June 14 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
  • Friday 3-6 p.m.
  • Sat 10 a.m. till 4 p.m.
  • Sun 10 a.m. till 1 p.m.

Because sales were cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic, troops were left with a lot of unsold cookies and didn’t reach their goals.

“We’re hoping to get people to support GSSNE’S largest fundraiser,” said Lisa Coons, a Coventry Girl Scout Troop leader who was at the booth Saturday.

Coons said all proceeds stay local, and aid the Girl Scouts’ heavy focus on community service. So far, 6,000 packages have been donated to first responders, nursing homes, pharmacists, food banks, and  essential workers.

The annual fundraiser provides the majority of the funds for troop activities, trips, community service projects, financial assistance, and more.

“When you make a Girl Scout Cookie purchase, you’re helping the next generation of female entrepreneurs who learn valuable skills such as decision making, goal setting, business ethics, people skills, and money management through participating in the Girl Scout Cookie Program,” according to the GSSNE
