Recommendations for Cookie Payments While Maintaining Social Distance

Recommendations for Girl Scout Families

With ongoing recommendations of social distancing, we understand parents, cookie managers and co-troop leaders' concerns about troop gatherings. We hear your concerns and have compiled a list of ways that you can make cookie payments in lieu of traditional in-person payments.

Please discuss the best option for your girl's troop with her troop co-leaders or cookie manager.

Digital Options:

  • PayPal: An online payment system that supports online money transfers and serves as an electronic alternative to traditional paper methods like checks and money orders. To avoid any possible fees, make sure to select the “gift or family and friends” option.  Users can create an online account, or download in App Store or Google Play.
  • Venmo: A mobile payment service owned by PayPal. Venmo account holders can transfer funds to others via a mobile phone app for free.
  • Cash App: A mobile payment service developed by Square and allows users to transfer money to one another using a mobile app for free.  Download in App Store or Google Play.


Bank Deposit Options:
Request the account number for the troop’s bank account and use the bank's drive thru to deposit the funds directly into the troop's bank account. Send your troop co-leader and/or cookie manager a picture of the receipt.
                                                              
Drop Off Option:
Discuss a time that your troop co-leader or cookie manager will be home to drop off payment at a designated location. Call or text your co-leader or cookie manager when you are there to leave payment so they can collect it immediately upon you leaving.

Whichever method is used by parents to send their cookie payments to the troop, the troop co-leader or troop cookie manager should write a receipt and text them a picture for their records.

Whether your troop is concluding their program on Sunday, March 22, or extending it until May 8, a cookie payment will be automatically withdrawn from the troop's bank account on April 6. The percentage withdrawn will be determined by the cookie program extension option selected by the troop. Please work with troop co-leaders and your cookie manager to make payments so that your troop's account balance will satisfy the ACH withdrawal amount.

If you have additional questions, or need further guidance please call us at 800-624-4185, email us at info@girlscoutshs.org or chat with us online at www.girlscoutshs.org.

Red Wagon Saturday Promotion - March 7

Pile up cookies in your wagon and sell directly to customers on Red Wagon Saturday!

Who can resist delicious Girl Scout Cookies when a Girl Scout is at their front door with their favorite cookies?!

Door-to-door sales remains one of the most effective ways to sell cookies. In a recent national study, 78% of those customers who were not approached during a cookie sale stated they would have purchased 2-4 boxes if asked.

Red Wagon Saturday was designed to reach those customers and help girls achieve their cookies goals, all while getting outdoors and meeting neighbors.

EARN A PATCH! HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:
Grab a wagon and have her decorate it! Make sure to include a sign or banner with her cookie goal! Next, map out your neighborhood and load up on cookies for a Red Wagon Saturday cookie shop on wheels!

Remember, safety first! Girls need a grown-up.  You can do this with your girl or meet up as a troop.

PICTURES MUST BE SUBMITTED FOR INDIVIDUAL GIRLS IN ORDER TO RECEIVE A PATCH. NO GROUP ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED. Deadline to submit pictures and earn a patch is March 30, 2020

Troop to Troops Military Donations

The Troop to Troops (T2T) program provides a perfect opportunity to send cookies to our military men and women who are protecting our freedom. Cookies are sent to our brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, sons and daughters who are putting their lives on hold to protect the freedoms dear to us all.  This is a great way to grow your cookie sales and support our military troops!

When girls take orders, they simply ask customers if they would like to donate boxes of cookies to be sent overseas to our military.  If the customer wishes to purchase some, they indicate this in the white column on the girl order form.  Customers do not specify flavors.  

If a customer wants certain cookies sent to a specific soldier, they need to purchase them and mail them to the soldier of their choice.  Girl Scouts Heart of the South does not have control over where the cookies are sent once they are delivered to the military.

Make New Friends Cookie Booth Lead Sheet

Cookie time is a great time to share all the fun you are having with other girls! And cookie  booths are the perfect place to invite a new girl to join Girl Scouts! Invite new girls to join Girl Scouts and your troop can earn free fun patches. Give them

the 1/4 page flyer that came with your troop cookie delivery packet, and ask for their parent’s contact information. Fill in each space and submit the completed form(s) to the council with your cookie paperwork.

We’ll follow up with each potential new Girl Scout about how to join!

Easy right? And the best part is that if you get at least 10 new girls’ contact information then every girl participating in the cookie program from your troop earns a FREE fun patch!

To earn the fun patches submit at least ten (10) fully completed contacts by the end of the cookie program. Forms should be submitted every Monday after booth sales. Email forms to info@girlscoutshs.org. All forms must be submitted by Monday, March 23, 2020. Only girls participating in the Girl Scout Cookie Program can earn the fun patch. Fun patches will be mailed to the troop leader’s address starting the week of March 23. Leaders can distribute these with other cookie rewards.

Troop Cookie Press Release

First Time Cookie Sellers
Cookie Pro 2020 - Cancelled

The 2020 Cookie Pro™ Cancelled

Given the impact of COVID-19, GSUSA made the tough, but necessary, decision to cancel G.I.R.L. 2020. In turn, the Cookie Pro  prize experience that was supposed to happen during G.I.R.L. 2020 cannot take place, and we have canceled the 2020 Cookie Pro ™ contest. 
 
GSUSA made this decision with the health and safety of all members of the Girl Scout Movement at the forefront. As we monitored public health experts’ recommendations and forecasts, it became clear that we could not grant the in-person  prize experience in October because we can’t host a large-scale event and guarantee the health and safety of participants. 
 
We understand the disappointment this may cause and are so grateful to all the inspiring young entrepreneurs across the country who applied their unique business smarts through this year’s contest.
