Our dad has four Girl Scouts this year: a Cadette, Junior, Brownie, and Daisy. He helped us walk through the neighborhood with our cookie powered wagon. He helped us at cookie booths, too. When we needed to make change for customers, he was patient while we did our math. Most dads can’t say they are the best cookie dad, but our dad is!
I have the best stepdad ever. He is at every meeting with my troop. I am a first-year Girl Scout and he has been to four booths with me and we are doing four more together. We have filled up our car and ride around with cookies and are always ready to sell! I am lucky to have John as a second dad, but even more excited he is a Girl Scout Dad! I can’t wait for adventures this summer too!
Lauren: This is my dad’s third year as my troop’s cookie manager. He’s also been our cookie coach every year! He helps my troop make sure we all have enough cookies to sell to reach our goals, helps shuttle cookies to all the booths, and makes sure we know what to say at the booths to our customers. He does a really good job and my troop leaders love him, too! He takes me to his morning networking meetings so I can do my cookie sales pitch and sell to all of his friends- that’s awesome because I’ve gotten to sell a lot of cookies that way! Our dad’s awesome!
Taylor: When I first started selling cookies, I was very quiet and not very sure of myself. My dad worked on my cookie sales pitch with me, practiced what to say if someone says no, and helped me build up my confidence. He’s funny and always knows how to help keep me going!
Our dad, Jeremy, is the best Cookie Dad because he has been by our side selling cookies since day one. This is our very first year as Girl Scouts, we are a Brownie and Daisy. Our dad has taken us to cookie booths, around our neighborhood, and to his work at the Royal Gorge Bridge and Park. He spends every chance he can helping us sell cookies. Not only does he help sell, but he’s taught us so much about running a business! We now know marketing skills, people skills, and handling money because our dad is so awesome and patient with us. We love our dad and wish everyone could have a Cookie Dad like ours!
My dad supports me when I am selling Girl Scout Cookies. He is there when I need help. I know that he is there for me when I need him. He has helped me do cookie booths and door-to-door sales. I’m happy when he helps me sell cookies. He has helped me sell cookies for three years now. He likes to buy cookies from me and eat them too!
My baby sister, Caroline, was born really early in the morning on the first day of the cookie program. My mom was in the hospital still, so my dad took me out selling cookies in our neighborhood. The weather was cold and rainy, and my dad had been up almost all night, but he knew I really wanted to earn the Game Day patch for selling 50 packages on the first day/Super Bowl Sunday, so he took me to each house and cheered me on all afternoon.
My dad also helped me work a bunch of different booths and reminds me to be confident with customers. He has helped me with my math skills too, and showed me how to make an Excel spreadsheet with formulas and everything, to keep track of my sales.
My dad works really hard in the Army and I know he would love to kick back and relax and watch the Super Bowl or the Olympics, but he gives his time to me and my siblings instead. I think he’s the one that deserves a gold medal because he’s an awesome, giving Cookie Dad!
My name is Kenzie. My dad, Shaun, is the most amazing cookie dad because he works from 3 a.m. to 4 p.m. and still finds time to go door-to-door with me. He delivers cookies to all his work friends and helps me become the top seller in my troop. That is why my dad is the most amazing cookie dad.
We have nicknamed him “Cookie Man” and he is the best. He is our troop’s biggest cheerleader! He isn’t afraid to be silly and show us that it’s okay to do the same. He gives really good advice and is always trying to help us reach our goals, not just at cookie time, but always.
He gives a lot of his time and energy to our troop and Girl Scouts. He volunteers to help with cookie pick-up day at the cupboard getting other troops their cookies and then makes sure each of us is set up too. When we did our Powder Puff Derby, he helped us with our car designs and supported us while we ran the show. At our drive-thru cookie booth, he got all of us energized (the sign twirling he’s got down, but we’re helping him with his high kick).
We wanted to share how much we appreciate him because he genuinely wants all of us to succeed. It’s good to have someone like that in your corner.
