Still time to boost your sales
With just two weeks remaining in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, give your girls and their families a big pat on the back (and yourself too!) for an impressive cookie program! We’re hearing of girls and troops who have soared past their goals and raised the bar once again. We’re seeing girls putting their business skills to work and we couldn’t be more impressed!
If you’re looking to boost sales these last couple of weeks and meet a new goal, don’t forget Gift of Caring and Hometown Heroes are a great way to do that. Customers who have already purchased cookies oftentimes are happy to donate a package or two to help girls reach their goals.
Gift of Caring cookies are never in the troop’s inventory and are delivered directly to uniformed personnel serving abroad and locally by Girl Scouts of Colorado. Digital Cookie is a great way to increase Gift of Caring sales! Use the platform to send emails to friends and family, asking them to provide a sweet treat to military and other uniformed personnel while helping you reach your goals!
Hometown Heroes are selected by the troop/Girl Scout (and should be listed in eBudde) and delivered by the troop to the organization. Troops should not hold onto Hometown Hero cookies; you will be able to pull additional cookies to fill Hometown Hero orders or use any remaining inventory at the end of the program for these donated cookies.
Check your inventory
Before ordering more cookies from Cookie Cupboards, be sure to check with families in your troop and troops in your area to transfer or swap varieties. There are cookies available for transfer in the Cookie Exchange on eBudde. Keep in mind, that at this point in the cookie program we are constantly moving inventory around the state and it’s possible your closest cupboard will not have all varieties available and some cupboards will begin to close this week.

Booth Etiquette Reminders
With the start of council booths, it’s a good time to remind girls and families about booth etiquette. Girls should be polite and thank people whether they purchase or not. Be courteous to arriving Girl Scouts and have your table packed and ready to move at the end of your time slot. Clean up all trash and remove all empty cases. Remember girls make all sales, but an adult should have the money on their person at all times.
Booth Release and waiting list
Can’t make it to a booth you selected? TCMs – Be sure to release the booth on your eBudde dashboard so that other troops can work the booth. When booth selections are released, any troop on the waiting list will be notified. Caregivers/parents please contact TCM to cancel My Sales booths.
