There's MORE to Girl Scout Cookies...

Our Girl Scout Cookie Program is much more than a fundraiser.  It's a fun way for girls of all ages to earn the money that fuels their dreams.

It's a powerful, hands-on leadership and entrepreneurial program.  The countless exciting possibilities - from new business opportunities to a healthier planet to a more beautiful world - begin with the skills girls learn and the actions they take today.   Girls will learn firsthand the ins and outs of running their own cookie businesses, even "branding" their enterprises for the maximum impact.

On this page you will find some resources to help get started.

Gift of Caring - "Cookies for Heroes"

Thanks to our Gift of Caring community service project, cookies can give back!  GSGMS is continuing the Cookies for Heroes program.  Last year over 5000 boxes were distributed and shipped overseas to women and men serving our country.

Cookies for Heroes is a program that allows the community to send Girl Scout cookies to miliatary personnel serving overseas and local heroes at home.  This can include veterans, firemen & women, policemen & women and EMTs.

This is a terrific alternative for those who want to support GSGMS without actually purchasing the cookies themselves, and is ideal fo companies and corporations.

The girls receive credit for these cookies sold.  The Council delivers the cookies; volunteers and girls do not handle any of the boxes!

Here's how it works:

  • During the sale, girls explain Cookies for Heroes and ask customers if they would like to purchase an additional box of cookies as a gift for our heroes at home.
  • A Girl Scout accepts payment when the customer places the order.
  • The virtual boxes will be entered in eBudde in the "heroes" column.

 

Each Girl Scout who sells a minimum of six (6) Cookies for Heroes boxes will earn a special patch!

"Bling" Your Cookie Booth Contest

If you want to attract lots and lots of customers, it's time to "bling" your cookie booth.  Be creative...anything colorful, bright and energetic should bring customers to your booth.  Just be sure to follow the guidelines set by your booth sponsor and Troop Leaders.
