Girl Scout Cookie Program

When you buy Girl Scout Cookies, you make adventures possible with every box.

Will your Girl Scout help the local animal shelter across town? Travel across the country to see the Grand Canyon? Cross an ocean to fly through the rainforest on a zip line? It’s up to her and her troop.

When girls participate in the Girl Scout Cookie program, they get more than new adventures. They develop important life skills-goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics-that will set them up for success beyond anything they can imagine.

Buy your delicious cookies from a local Girl Scout. You will enjoy your favorite cookie even more knowing you’ve helped Girl Scouts do amazing things!

Troop to Troop

We invite all Eastern Missouri Girl Scouts to participate in our “Troop to Troop” community service effort during the 2016 Cookie Program. Last year more than 54,000 packages of cookies were donated as a “taste of home” to United States military personnel through the USO of Missouri thanks to the generosity of our community.

It is easy to participate in “Troop to Troop”:

  • Girls ask customers if they would like to purchase Girl Scout Cookies for donation during order taking and at troop booths
  • Troops use the special box wrap provided in their troop packet as well as our custom flier to promote “Troop to Troop” at cookie booths
  • Girls collect payment for the donated cookies from their customers
  • Troop cookie managers record these packages in eBudde under the “CT2T” column
  • Girl Scout Council delivers all of these donated cookies to the USO of Missouri, so troops do not take physical possession of the “Troop to Troop” cookies
