Why participate
IN THE GIRL SCOUT COOKIE PROGRAM?
What are your hopes for your Girl Scout? Certainly, you want her to make
good decisions, know how to manage money. And how to set and reach
goals, like attending college.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program helps her succeed today and prepares
her for future success.

There’s a good reason it’s a beloved family tradition.

1. Goal Setting: Girls set cookie sales goals individually and with
their team, create a plan to reach them, and develop cooperation and
team-building skills all along the way!

2. Decision Making: Girls help decide how the team will
spend their cookie money, furthering their critical-thinking and prob-
lem-solving skills.

3. Money Management: Girls take cookie orders, handle
customers’ money and gain practical life skills in financial literacy.

4. People Skills: Girls learn how to talk to, listen to and work
with all kinds of people while selling cookies. These experiences help
them develop healthy relationship and conflict-resolution skills
they can use throughout their lives.

5. Business Ethics: Girls are honest and responsible at every
step of the cookie sale. Their business ethics here reinforce the positive
values they are developing as a Girl Scout.

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 cookie goals, all while getting outdoors
      and meeting neighbors.
                                                                                  MARCH 2, 2019

                                              Troop to Troops and Gift of Caring.

troop to troops
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.

                                           gift of caring
                                              The Gift of Caring program is a nationwide community service project where
                                              Girl Scout troops may decide on a charitable organization or service group –
