INDIANAPOLIS — Girl Scout leaders say they'll likely have to cancel programs and scholarship opportunities due to low sales.
The Girl Scouts of Central Indiana said even though they have sold up to 200,000 boxes of cookies this year, they could turn out a million dollars short. They're sending the leftover boxes to food pantries and health-care workers.
"We're worried about when families are making choices this fall and this next school year, what they use their discretionary income for, were going to have more need than ever," said Daniell Shockey CEO of Girl Scouts of Indiana. "We feel more than ever, they're going to want to be engaged in Girl Scouts and were worried they can't afford it."
Girl Scout Cookies can still be purchased online and shipped directly to your house.
