Girl Scouts of Southwest Indiana

New! 2023 Cookie Reference Materials
It's time to start planning for cookie season! Updated reference materials are now available for volunteers and girls. For a complete list of cookie references, forms, and training, visit our website's For Cookie Volunteers section.
Service Unit Cookie Information
Each service unit has a designated Service Unit Cookie Chair (SUCC) that serves as the main contact for each area during the cookie program. In addition, all troop cookie volunteers must attend their service unit’s cookie training. Preferably, troop leaders will attend as well. If both the cookie volunteer and troop leader are unavailable, a volunteer from the troop can instead. If you cannot attend or have questions, please contact your SUCC or cookies@girlscouts-gssi.org.

Smart Cookies Tip: Smart Cookies Mobile App or Smart Cookies Browser Page?
Girls use the Smart Cookies mobile app to take orders and accept credit card payments. If you have downloaded the app in previous years, it needs to be deleted and reinstalled each cookie season. Volunteers must access Smart Cookies by using a page on a web browser.

Girl Scouts of Southwest Indiana believes in the power of girl leadership and the power of monthly giving. When you join our Giver Every Month Club (GEMs), you help local Girl Scouts by giving monthly financial support. Monthly donations help lower costs through automation and reduced mailings, meaning that more of your donation goes directly to Girl Scouts.

Join at just $19.12!
Did you know that Girl Scouts was founded in 1912? As a fun way to recognize this special year and encourage you to become a GEM with GSSI, you can start your monthly gifts today for just $19.12 or increase your current giving by $19.12 per month. After your initial gift of $19.12, your monthly donation can be any dollar amount. As a GEM, you are entirely in control of your donations and can cancel or change your amount at any time.

Invest in girls; change the world. It’s as simple as $19.12!

We also thank Troop Leader Kathy Messmer this Veteran's Day for hosting the annual Cookies for Veterans event for Dubois County Girl Scouts! During the event, girls learned about veterans, made patriotic crafts to take home, made thank-you cards for veterans, and decorated cookie boxes. Each box was filled with 30 homemade cookies, a bag of chips, a package of cocoa, and a thank you card. The group made 50 gift boxes and donated them to the Jasper VFW and American Legion.
As part of our "Project Pollinate" program funded by Alcoa Foundation, we are now offering funding to assist with community service projects. Throughout 2023, Girl Scouts are encouraged to look for meaningful ways to contribute to their community while sharpening their problem-solving skills and expanding their definition of philanthropy through community service projects focused on protecting pollinators. These projects will work to influence the community’s environmental attitudes, values, and behaviors and cultivate a sense of responsibility for nature. Funding of up to $75 is available for approved projects. This can be given to individuals, troops, service units, and/or camps. For questions, contact Cassie McCord at cmccord@girlscouts-gssi.org.
