How does Cookies for Heroes work? Cookies for Heroes is the Council Gift of Caring service project. Girls offer customers the opportunity to purchase boxes of cookies that are sent to the men and women serving our country. Cookies for Heroes cookies are reported in eBudde in the GOC column The troop does not handle these cookies The Council delivers these cookies from its inventory Each girls final box count includes the cookies she sold for Cookies for Heroes

Booth Sales

Booth Sales are a great way for girls to work together, develop skills, and reach their sales goals! They are: A direct sale of cookies to customers in a public place A way to bring cookies to people who have not been asked and to repeat customers who are ready for more cookies An opportunity for the public to purchase cookies for Cookies for Heroes and local Gift of Caring projects Important Booth Sale Reminders: Contact your SU Cookie Manager for booth scheduling procedures for your area If troops do not have cookies on hand for the booth sale, they need to contact a Cookie Cupboard at least 2 weeks in advance of their booth sale date

34 Cookie Cupboards

Cookie Cupboards

Cookie Cupboards are locations where troops/groups/girls can obtain more cookies for direct sales and booth sales. But, they do not have an unlimited number of cookies, so cookie requests must be placed at least two weeks in advance of need. There are two types of Cookie Cupboards

Council Cupboard Provides cookies to all troops Open from end of Feb. through early April Restocked by the trucker Cookies come from the warehouse Will have cookies through April eBudde entries need to be done ASAP List of locations will be out in February Volunteer Managed

Service Unit Cupboard Provides cookies only to troops within the SU Open from early March through end of March Restocked by SU Volunteers Cookies come from a Council Cupboard Attempt to get inventory down to zero eBudde entries need to be done ASAP SU needs to inform volunteers of cupboard info Volunteer Managed
