Here are some creative ideas for Girl Scouts to continue their cookie program sales:
Virtual Booth: Have Girl Scouts do a Facebook Live Event as a Virtual Booth…talk about the cookies, what their goals are, how they want to spend their funds and people announce they would like to order during the live presentation. Send the Digital Cookie link via messenger and they do the Social Distancing drop off. You could even have a challenge and say for every 20 boxes sold your daughter will sing a camp song (or something like that)!
Troop Cookie Buyout: Use this flyer to approach community businesess for help reducing your cookie inventory.
Girl Scouts may continue the Cookie Program through these options:
- Conducting online sales through the girl delivery option. Girls can take orders online and deliver in person, as they feel comfortable.
- Conducting online sales through the direct ship option. Girls send emails and their customers order and pay online, and the product is shipped. The $7 shipping discount runs March 17 through March 30.
- Utilizing social media and digital marketing platforms to reach customers.
- Sell to friends and families.
We encourage all girls and volunteers to follow all safety and health protocols as they continue with their cookie sales, exercising caution and discretion to make decisions in the best interest of their girls.
Turning in Cookie Funds within CDC Guidelines: Parents have a few options to get funds to the troops. Please make sure to adhere to all social distancing guidelines. Do not wait to deposit funds!
