BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Many Baton Rouge nonprofits are struggling to fundraise during the pandemic. The Girl Scouts and Brownies are adjusting their cookie sales to online this year due to the pandemic.

Scouts now have the choice of whether they want to sell or not, but one Brownie troop from Ascension Parish, is trying to do all they can to raise money for their troop and the non-profits they assist.

Brownie member, Skyleigh Pietsch says her troop has not been able to meet for the most part of the year but says that she is determined to sell as many cookies as possible to help her community. “I like being a brownie because I get to spend time with my community,” says Pietsch.

Ordering online is simple, each troop member has their own personal link which will allow customers to get cookies. It can either be shipped to folks directly or the troop member can bring it to one’s door.

“I am just trying to get the word out that we are still selling cookies. You know, there’s Girl Scout troops still out there and that are still doing this and if you’re like me I know you want cookies,” adds Pietsch.
