Have Extra or Need More Cookies?

Start by checking the Edina Cookie Google doc and help a troop out before going to the cupboard.  

Please work with Amy via cookies@girlscoutsedina.org to connect with troops that have cookies or need cookies. Goal is to not return any cookies for any troop.

PLEASE, before going to the cupboards, help a troop out by over-communicating inventory and cookie needs with Amy using the cookie spreadsheet on our Edina site. We can likely fill your cookie needs with troops in Edina. We can only return UNOPENED cases. They will open a corner of each case to make sure there is no hot glue. Troops are responsible for that inventory. 

FAQ
  • Will there be online sales this year? With much national press about the Girl Scouts of the USA roll-out of the Digital Cookie program, we know our members have questions. In short, River Valleys will not be participating in Digital Cookie for 2015. You can find a Q + A about Digital Cookie on our website.
  • Credit Card Sales? Here is information on using PayAnywhere to accept credit cards at booths.
  • Gluten-free cookies? Troops will only be guaranteed two cases yet order up to four cases. They are larger boxes similar to the old Dulce de Leche and sell for $5.50/box. 
  • Money Deposits to Council? No more Council deposits!  Weekly deposit all money to the troop account.  Council will debit the troop account two times during the sale. Money MUST be in the account and troop will be responsible for any NSF fees on Council draws.
  • Inventory at end of sale? How to pay? If you have cookies at the end of the sale, you may sell after the end date. Fill out the money problem form requesting extra time to sell your inventory. The Council may give up to three extra months to pay for that inventory.
  • Will checks made out to Girl Scouts be accepted in our Troop account? Short answer is yes.  checks made out simply to Girl Scouts can be deposited into your troop accounts.
