CICERO, N.Y. (WWTI) — Local Girl Scouts are getting creative in light of this years cookie season.
As the iconic cookies officially arrive in New York State this week, Girl Scouts are getting creative as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to bring challenges. This includes digital sales, drive-thru booths and utilizing GrubHub delivery services.
