Troop 4475 of Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles donated 400 boxes of Girl Scout cookies to frontline workers from Community Organized Relief Effort at L.A. City’s Dodger Stadium COVID-19 vaccination site on March 12, marking National Girl Scout Day alongside CORE Co-founder and CEO Ann Lee and board member Soleil Moon Frye. CORE has been working on the frontlines with their L.A. City partners since March 2020, providing access to free services inclusive of COVID-19 testing and now vaccinations. With its partners at L.A. City, Los Angeles Fire Department, USC School of Pharmacy and Carbon Health, CORE operates the nation’s largest vaccination site at Dodger Stadium, which has the capacity to administer over 12,000 vaccines per day.
In a typical year, Troop 4475, which is comprised of eight Girl Scout Juniors and one Girl Scout Daisy – all from West Hollywood – would set up booths and sell cookies in-person. With the COVID-19 pandemic, many troops pivoted to utilizing Digital Cookie, which enables customers to order cookies online for home delivery. However, this year, Troop 4475 kicked their cookie season up a notch by initiating a service project. At the Dodger Stadium site, representatives from CORE thanked Troop 4475 for their donation and congratulated them on their hard work.
