One of the traditions hit hardest by COVID-19 is also one of the most delicious.
The Girl Scouts announced Monday that they have 15 million boxes of unsold cookies from 2020, a problem they’ve never faced before.
Due to the pandemic many troops across the country canceled their in-person sales and booths to help stop the spread of the virus.
This fundraising shortfall — roughly $60 million — will have impacts on a lot of the programs the Girl Scouts enjoy each year. The organization says many of those cookies will be donated, and possibly sold to different institutions to try and make up some of the losses.
