Girl Scouts Heart of Michigan rises up to serve girls amid COVID-19 Crisis 
     With the world coming to a screeching halt, it seems that everything has been cancelled. Girl Scouts, however, is never cancelled. Girl Scouts Heart of Michigan has pivoted our program model to allow all girls to participate in virtual Girl Scout programming, including badge earning activities and the Cookie Program. 
     Content posted daily on our Facebook page provides activities, education, and fun for girls ages 5-17. Topics include community service, cybersecurity, engineering, arts and STEAM, friendship, and more, as new topics are added daily. A full menu of our virtual offerings can be found on our website. 
    Girls are enjoying this wide array of virtual activities, while planning for in-person adventures, troop activities, field trips, and community service projects, when all is safe for interaction. 
     As part of that planning, girls are continuing to participate in the cookie program, the largest entrepreneurial program for girls in the world! Girls throughout Girl Scouts Heart of Michigan have digital cookie stores, from which you can order cookies to be shipped right to your door. You also have the chance to donate to the girl’s Hometown Hero effort, which supports the purchase of cookies for local frontline healthcare workers and first responders. These purchases support girls right in your community, and ensure that girls reach the goals they have set for themselves and their troops. 
     Anyone interested in purchasing cookies from a girl right here in our community can email 
     Girl Scouts have always risen to the challenge, helping out during the Spanish influenza in 1918 and during both World Wars. Today’s Girl Scouts are no different. We have seen girls across our great state doing what they can to make a positive difference in their world around them, through creating homemade masks, donating cookies, and planning socially distanced community service opportunities.
