Cookies for Heroes
Cookies for Heroes is our Council sponsored Gift of Caring service project and a great way for girls, troops and customers to support our heroes, both at home and abroad. We distributed 130,000 boxes of cookies last year and are hoping to bring smiles to even more of our heroes this coming year!
Everyone is going to want this year’s
“Must Have” Recognitions
New this year !!
Troops that have a per girl troop selling average of 115 boxes on the initial order and all of the girls placing an initial order and two adults will receive one of these stylish and very cool string bags!
Individual girls selling 115 or more boxes on their initial order will earn this travel tote!
Booth Sale Bonus
For every 20 cases ordered in the initial order troops receive a $20 bonus.
These cases must be ordered in eBudde prior to submitting the initial order. All booth orders placed in the initial order will be picked up on Delivery Day with the rest of the troop’s order.
Why Order Booth Sale Cookies on the Initial Order?
Earn more proceeds for your troop! For every 20 cases ordered on the initial order troops receive a $20 bonus. Having multiple booth sales? Order 40 cases earn $40!
Increase the number of cookies ordered with the initial order! Booth sale boxes count toward the number of cookies sold and can help your troop earn the Peace, Love, Cookies Drawstring Bags.
Have cookies available for immediate sale! It’s great to have cookies on hand to fill additional orders. Troops choose the varieties of cookies they would like, so make sure to order the most popular choices to keep customers satisfied.
Skip the cupboard!Troops will not need to make a special trip to a cookie cupboard for cookies. Of course, if a troop needs more cookies after their booth boxes are sold, they can always make an appointment to pick up more.
For security reasons, all passwords have been reset to 164Samoas!! You will be directed to change your password the first time you log in.
Our popular drive-thru deliveries are back! Troops will pick up their cookies on
March 1 or March 2, 2014. We are in the process of confirming all of the sites used last year.
Each Service Unit will be assigned a delivery site and block of time for cookie pick-ups. Troops will sign up in eBudde for their desired time within their Service Unit’s slot.
All vehicles picking up at the drive-thrus should have 2 adults – a driver and a counter. Cars should be EMPTY and have no children, pets or car seats in them.
We need volunteers from your Service Unit to help out at delivery. If you are available
let your SU Cookie Manager know. It is a fun day!
Cookie Cupboards are volunteer-run locations where troops can pick up cookies to fill Goal Getter and Booth Sale orders. Cupboards are open on set days and times as determined by the manager; please be respectful of this schedule. Troop Cookie Managers or troop volunteers make arrangements directly with the Cupboard Manager to pick up cookies.
A full list of Council Cookie Cupboards will be available in February 2014. Troops from any town may pick up from a Council Cupboard. Service Units may also have a cupboard just for their area- Consider this options for your troops!
Cupboards cannot swap boxes for different varieties, take back individual boxes of cookies, or accept cookies that troops received as part of their initial order.
Cookies picked up to fill Goal Getter orders become the immediate responsibility of the troop. Booth sale cookies are taken from the cupboard on consignment. After a booth sale takes place, a troop may return full, unopened cases of cookies that are in excellent and sellable condition. The troop is responsible for all other cookies not returned to the cupboard.
All cookies picked up from a cupboard will be assigned to the troop in eBudde and will be calculated as part of the troop’s total sales.

Cookies Credits and TOP certificates will be mailed directly to Troop Leaders or Troop Cookie Managers so please update your contact information in eBudde.

Payment to Council
NEW PROCEDURE FOR 2014:
Payment for ALL cookies received PRIOR to March 19, 2014 must be deposited into the Council’s Product Sales account at Webster Bank on or before 12 noon on March 21, 2014.Any cookies picked up after March 19, or any cookies for booth sales after March 19 should be paid for within 3 days of the booth sale.
If a troop ordered its booth sale cookies in its initial order AND has not held the booth sale prior to March 19th, simply deduct the amount owed for the booth sale boxes from the total amount owed and pay the difference. This means that troops may have to make two deposits – one for the cookies picked up and sold prior to March 19th and those picked up and sold afterwards.
