For customers who’ve already purchased enough cookies for themselves, the Cookie Share Program is a great option. This program is a way for girls and their customers to help others in the community by purchasing cookies for local charities – including military men, women and families, Catholic Charities, and the Kansas Food Bank among others.
Girl Scout Volunteers, staff and military personnel helped load more than 15,000 cookie boxes purchased through the Cookie Share program in 2012 for Catholic Charities and Kansas Food Bank. More than half of all shares went to overseas troops and military families.
The Cookie Share program allows customers to donate cookies to our military troops and their families, Catholic Charities, Kansas Food Bank and local food pantries. Now, as a business, you can help the girls with the cookie share matching program.
It’s this easy—contact the Girl Scout office at 888-686-MINT and tell them you are interested in participating in the matching program.
We have a program for every size of business. What a great way to put a smile on the face of people in your community by donating Girl Scout cookies to a local food pantry or on a solder’s face when they open that “little taste of home” – Girl Scout Cookies. Also, by participating you are helping a local Girl Scout meet or exceed her goal!
SHEPLERS: LEADING THE WAY IN COOKIE SHARES
In 2012, Shelplers Inc. bought 17 boxes to serve at organizational staff meetings as well as secured 100 Cookie Shares intended to be sent to troops overseas. These shares were distributed among staff members’ daughters who are Girl Scouts.
Nikki Beyrle, Sheplers Human Resource Manager, helped by giving a video testimony about why they feel, as an organization, that it is important to support their community and how backing Girl Scouts is a win-win. She and the Product Sales team at Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland challenge other like-minded organizations to follow their lead.
