More Info for Cookie Sellers

Care to Share

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 Soldier’s Angels and Riverbend Troop Support; military support organizations that send care packages.



Girls who sell 12 or more packages earn the Gift of Caring patch.



If a girl sells 24 or more packages, she will earn a horse mirror.

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 17, 2020. Reports can be mailed to 317 7th Avenue SE, Suite 201, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 2401 or emailed to
