More Info for Cookie Sellers

Care to Share
2023 Gift of Caring Patch

Customers can purchase cookies to donate to men and women serving in the military through a council-sponsored program called Care to Share. Cookies purchased go directly to military personnel and essential workers in our community through organizations like Iowa’s Bravest, Riverbend Troop Support, and Soldier’s Angels.

Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois facilitates the delivery of cookies purchased through this program. In 2022, Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois collected donations of 26,000 packages of cookies for the Care to Share Program!

Girls who sell 15 or more packages earn the Gift of Caring patch.

Cookie Captains

Earn Additional Cookie Credit!
Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors have the opportunity to become Cookie Captains and earn additional program credits! Because the largest girl-led business in the world is a major part of Girl Scouts and greatly benefits our council, we want to provide older girls an opportunity to share their expertise with younger girls.

There are optional activities for girls to complete to earn credits, but all girls must complete the online training to earn an initial $5 in program credit and train a Cookie Rookie Troop to earn another $5 in program credit. All Cookie Captains will need to complete a final report as well. Below is a list of other activities to earn additional credits.

  • Help at a Cookie Rally = $5
  • Help half of the girls in a troop setup Digital Cookie accounts = $5
  • Help a troop achieve a PGA (Per Girl Average) of 175 = $15

Cookie Captains must complete their final report by Friday, April 21, 2023. Reports can be mailed to Shelli Griffin at 940 Golden Valley Dr., Bettendorf, IA 52722 or emailed to Info@GirlScoutsToday.org.

Juliettes and Non-Troop Sellers

The Juliette program allows girls to register individually for Girl Scouts, mixing and matching different activities to meet their needs and interests. Juliettes can participate in the Cookie Program, learn business skills, and earn rewards! This includes girls who may be in a troop, but choosing to participate individually in the Cookie Program (if the troop is not participating).

To sell cookies if you are an Individually Registered Member or if your troop is not participating in the cookie sale please complete this form:

Rewards

Girl Scouts can earn awesome prizes throughout the Cookie Program. Check out this year's rewards line-up and start planning your goals! 

Girls can also receive some rewards instantly when they reach 110 and 185 packages sold.  

110 packages: Decal Stickers


 

185 packages: Dolphin Tail Pen

25 0 packages: Pick out an instant mystery reward

Stop into a Girl Scout Office to pick out an instant mystery reward as your Girl Scout sells in increments of 250 packages of cookies! When she reaches 250, 500, 750, 1,000 and beyond, she’s eligible to pick out a prize. Each office has tons of prizes to choose from, like notebooks, shirts, stuffed animals, stocking hats, keychains, bath bombs, and more.
 
Girl Scouts are invited to stop into our Bettendorf, Cedar Rapids, Waterloo, and West Burlington locations during offices hours as well as the fourth Saturday of the month from 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. on January 22, February 26, and March 26.

500 Club
Girls selling 500+ packages will become a member of the elite 500 Club! Girls earn a special bar segment and certificate in celebration of their success!

Program Credit
Program Credit is an individual girl reward. It can be used to pay for camp, council-sponsored and Service Unit events, uniforms, pins, awards, and merchandise at the Girl Scout shops or camp trading posts. This year all girls will earn program credits in the amount of $5 for every 50 packages of cookies sold starting at 200 and ending at 500.  Girls will also have the option to choose $100 Program Credit instead of a reward at each level at and above 500 packages sold.

These programs can also be banked for Cadettes and older to save for National/international trips or High Award projects.
