Need More Cookies?
Have no fear, Cookie Cupboards are near!
Cookie Cupboards are locations where Troop Cookie Managers can call in an order to pick-up additional cookies for girls selling to individual customers, and for troop or group booth sales! Girls who sell cookies after the initial selling period still receive Cookie Credits and recognitions.
- Cookie Cupboards are open February 23 - March 11. (GS Office Cupboards will be open until March 13 for new orders, and through March 16 for exchanges only)
- Only Troop Cookie Managers (not parents) can pick up cookies boxes or cases.
- Cookies can be exchanged only for other varieties. Cookies cannot be returned.
- Boxes not in condition to be sold (with writing, tape, smell like smoke, etc.) will not be exchanged.
- Cookie boxes damaged during shipping (crushed or ripped) can be exchanged.
- Remember, each troop is responsible for all cookies ordered plus the cookies they pick up from a Cookie Cupboard or other troop.
- Use receipts to record all transactions.

Salina is in need of some Cookie Cupboard volunteers on Tuesdays and Thursdays. If you're able to help, please contact Katie Utter at firstname.lastname@example.org.

What I do on a typical day: On a typical day, I share the leadership message of Girl Scouting with many audiences: donors or potential donors, Board members, girls, volunteers, community leaders, staff, sometimes random people who comment on my car tag (GRLSCTS) or the cookie magnets covering my car.
Why I love being a Girl Scout: I love being a Girl Scout because Girl Scouting fits a girls' life no matter what her interests, where she lives, or how much money her family has. The power of the organization behind her journey, with so many dedicated volunteers to help her along the way, is an incredible force and one I'm honored and lucky to be a part of.
When I'm not working on Girl Scouting, you can find me: Playing with my Chocolate Lab, Callie; reading cooking magazines or trying to recreate some great restaurant dish; spending time with my husband, Cameron, and my stepson Corbin; volunteering at my church; reading; or watching movies, particularly historical fiction.
