Coronavirus

At Girl Scouts Louisiana East, our number one priority is the health and safety of our girls, families, volunteers, and staff.

As local stay-at-home restrictions begin to ease, GSLE will begin to reopen offices and shops on a phased schedule. Beginning on Thursday, June 11, 2020, Headquarters and Regional staff members will begin reporting to their respective offices on a phased schedule as we adhere to social distancing and the phased reopening guidelines established by the Governor. All staff will contine to work remotely on Fridays of each week until further notice.

Frequently Asked Questions

Girl Scouts at Home

To ensure girls are getting the tools they need to become our world’s ambitious change-makers, Girl Scouts USA has launched Girl Scouts at Home, a national online platform where all girls and families—not just Girl Scout members—can access free, self-guided activities from GSUSA’s expert programming, as well as a Virtual Events Calendar with online events and resources for girls, parents, and volunteers.

Visit the GSLE Girl Scouts at Home webpage and Facebook page for all the fun programming we're doing right here at Girl Scouts Louisiana East! 

HQ, Service Centers and Retail Shops

Beginning on Thursday, June 11, 2020, Headquarters and Regional staff members will begin reporting to their respective offices on a phased schedule as we adhere to social distancing and the phased reopening guidelines established by the Governor. All staff will contine to work remotely on Fridays of each week until further notice.

As of Thursday, June 11, 2020, our Headquarters and Regional Office shops will be open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. for curbside pickup only. 

Customers should complete the Curbside Pick-Up Form and email to shop@gsle.org. We will contact you to collect payment over the phone and confirm your pickup date/time. Please submit orders at least two business days in advance to allow for processing. 

In order to minimize contact, please call upon arrival and let us know which numbered spot you're parked in. An employee will deliver your purchases to the passenger side of your vehicle. Customers must confirm the accuracy of their order, and notify us immediately of any issues. Once merchandise leaves GSLE property, it cannot be returned/exchanged. 

Due to concerns with COVID-19, we are temporarily unable to accept returns or exchanges. As a reminder, we can also fulfill orders online through the GSUSA Shop
