February 2023 Girl Scout Cookie News!


Cookie Cupboards are opening at the end of February! Troops can place orders for additional cookies starting on Monday, February 13. Here is a list of GSNI Council Cookie Cupboard locations and hours. Watch for an eBudde email at the beginning of February listing all GSNI Cookie Cupboards and cupboard guidelines and procedures. When completed, the list of all cupboards can also be found in the Help Center or on the Reports tab in eBudde.

GSNI offers a variety of activities for your troop and Girl Scouts to participate in throughout the cookie program. Troops can participate in the Gift of Caring Opportunity. Girl Scouts participating in this activity with the troop receive a patch. Individual Girl Scout activities include Cookie Craver and Cookie Business Challenge.

Troop Links will be available to set up starting on Friday, February 3. Troop Links/Sites can be used for Virtual Cookie Booths, at a traditional Cookie Booth to take credit card payments, and through Cookie Finder. Troop Cookie Chairs/leaders must set-up the Troop Link/Site in Digital Cookie, similar to setting up an individual’s site, for it to be active. All activated Troop Links will be listed on the Cookie Finder starting Monday, February 27, where customers can enter a zip code to look up troops to purchase cookies for shipping. No work on the troop’s part, except to set up the link! Follow these instructions to apply Troop Link sales for Girl Scouts towards their rewards.
