Digital Cookie Opens/Cookie Program Begins: December 11, 2023
Girl Scouts have a long tradition of making the world a better place
and knowing the importance of community service and the value of
giving back! During the Cookie Program, this can be achieved through
our Hometown Heroes donation program.
Hometown Heroes encourages girls to ask customers/businesses to donate as little as $5 so cookies can find their way to military organizations, first responders and other local heroes throughout communities in North-Central Alabama.
What a sweet deal! Encourage customers to buy one box of cookies for themselves and another to give - through the Hometown Heroes program.
GSNCA facilitates the delivery of cookies purchased through the Hometown Heroes program with organizations such as frontline medical personnel, active military and veterans, local first responders, and other non-profit organizations that are making a difference every day throughout the council.
All Hometown Heroes donations count towards girl rewards and troop proceeds.
For Service Units or Troops
Earn a fun patch to kick off your Girl Scout cookie season with the ultimate party for girls: a Girl Scout Cookie Rally! Service units and/or troops will host a rally full of fun and interactive activities for girls to learn about the skills needed to master the Cookie Program.
For Girls and Families
It’s never been easier to support your Girl Scout as she develops business skills, makes amazing memories, and earns a different pin every cookie season. The simple, age-specific guidelines meet her where she is developmentally, making success a snap.
Cookie Business badges demonstrate that Girl Scouts have developed specific skills while running their own business. Earning Cookie Business badges gives you the chance to hone your skills and gain a deeper understanding of the world of business.
All troops participating in the Girl Scout Cookie Program are encouraged to recruit a Troop Cookie Manager to help manage the program. Cookie Program training is intended for Service Unit Cookie Managers, and Troop Cookie Managers.
2024 Cookie Training Information - COMING SOON
We are excited to review the cookie program materials, answer questions and help you volunteers be prepared to lead your girl scouts and troops to a successful cookie season.
