London Drugs to sell Girl Guide cookies

Unable to go door-to-door due to the pandemic, Girl Guides of Canada B.C. have swung a deal to have London Drugs sell cookies on their behalf.

The largest source of income for the group, they hope to sell 120,000 boxes at the outlets across the province, as well as online, through an "exclusive, safe distribution partnership," and raise more than $600,000 in the process.

Funds raised will support Girl Guide programming at the local level as well as inclusion resources and membership subsidies for girls with financial need. 

It will also support newly adopted initiatives to provide safe in-person, virtual or anytime activities that keep guiding going remotely and important skill-building activities happening at home during the pandemic. 

“Now more than ever, we need funding to keep girls connected with supportive peers and caring adult role models who mentor them during these unusual times,” said Diamond Isinger, provincial commissioner for BC, Girl Guides of Canada. “We are grateful to London Drugs for providing a safe distribution network to sell our cookies, and we are grateful to British Columbians for their continued support through the purchase of Girl Guide cookies.”
