Dear Troop Leaders & Cookie Managers,
Hope everyone was able to get their cookie orders into SNAP! If you were unable to submit or missed the deadline, please connect with your Service Unit PSM ASAP. If you don't know who your PSM is or have additional questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. There is still time, and we are ready to help you!
Of course, there are always customers who didn't place their order or want more cookies. The Cookie Finder is great place to connect them (remember this is the place where customers can find community booth locations, dates and times). In addition to the Cookie Finder, please know you can get more cookies through service unit and regional cookie cupboards.
Cookie season is always a time we receive a lot of press coverage. Generally, the coverage is positive and highlights the valuable impact Girl Scouting and the Cookie Program has on girls. However, there are groups who use this time of year as an opportunity for publicity, by attacking Girl Scouts. We have recently been alerted that an online article is calling for a boycott of Girl Scout cookies based on false information. Please help share the facts about the Cookie Program.
National Cookie Days - "The World's Largest Cookie Party"
Did you know that February 7 and 8 are National Cookie Days? Councils are doing fun activities across the country. Though, we don't officially have our cookies - we have received a limited supply for a few special booth sales.
Through a drawing, we are giving a few troops the opportunity to participate in a "World's Largest Cookie Party" booth sale on Saturday, February 8. If you would like to be placed in the drawing for a two hour shift, please see details below. Troops will earn $.65 per package sold and girls will earn packages toward their recognitions.
