Save the Date: Giving Tuesday is Tomorrow!
Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform our communities and the world.

Join us on Tuesday, November 29, to champion the changemakers of today-- and tomorrow! Plus, all donations will be matched by Schultheis Insurance to double the impact! Invest in girls. Change the world.

To give, you can visit the link below and select "Giving Tuesday" from the dropdown box on the donation form. You can also visit our Facebook page and contribute to our fundraiser there.

PLUS! If you share any of our Giving Tuesday posts on Facebook, you will be entered into a drawing for a Girl Scout Cookie gift pack that includes Thin Mints and the *NEW* Raspberry Rally cookies! (Note: To be entered in the drawing, you must set the audience for your post to public. LEARN HOW)
Don't Forget—Cookie Permission forms are due by December 1!
All girls who wish to participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program must have a permission form on file with the council by December 1. Forms turned in after this date could delay access to Smart Cookies by the December 5 program start date. The form is available for download at the link below. For questions, contact cookies@girlscouts-gssi.org.

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.

This week we would like to recognize Jannelle James and the Perry County service unit volunteers and Girl Scouts who recently served their families and volunteers a Thanksgiving Feast! The girls prepared and served the meal and hope to make it an annual Perry County Girl Scout tradition! To see pictures of the event, visit our Facebook page.
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.
