Update from the CEO

Email and Video

March 31, 2020

Dear Members,

I hope you and your families are safe and healthy and are managing during this difficult time. Please find below a link to a short video I created to provide a few council updates. 

*Please note: as Linda’s video mentions, GSHCC was able to take back remaining troop cookie inventory to help those troops affected by COVID-19 in our council. All troops that showed excess inventory as of March 30 had their excess inventory removed. (The deadline for council removal of remaining troop cookie inventory was Monday, March 30.) If you are a troop leader and have questions regarding your troop’s cookie inventory, please contact Customer Care at

Here are the links I mention in the video:

  • Girl Scouts of the USA launched their Stay at Home initiative, offering virtual content to girls across the nation. Our own Girl Experience team helped in the development. Please check out the great activities.
  • GSHCC has launched a series of virtual programs. Take a look at our special virtual program site and stay tuned for more virtual content. 
  • A very special thank you to Girl Scouts who are taking action and serving communities most in need. Here are some ideas for how girls can safely contribute to their communities.

Please stay tuned for additional updates. In the meantime, stay well and all the best to you and your family.
