Reaching Higher Goals
Though initial orders have already been submitted, girls can keep taking orders to reach their cookie goals! Leaders and cookie volunteers—remind girls to resend cookie links to customers who ordered in December; they might need to restock!

Raspberry Rally Temporarily Turned off in Smart Cookies
Raspberry Rallys will be turned off from the online platform until Friday, February 10. This was planned for councils with cookie programs that start later. Once it is turned back on on February 10, it will remain on for the rest of the GSSI cookie program.

Walmart & Schnucks Cookie Booth Lotteries
Walmart Lotteries for East Evansville, Newburgh, 1st Ave Evansville, and West Evansville began Wednesday, January 18 at 9:00 AM CST and will run until Saturday, January 21 at 9:00 AM CST. First come, first serve times will open at 4:00 CST on Saturday, January 21, and remain open until all slots are filled.

We are still coordinating booths with Schnucks' corporate office. We will send an email through Smart Cookies when these become available.

Smart Cookies Tip of the Week: Entering Troop-Secured Cookie Booths
Make sure to add all troop-secured booths into Smart Cookies! This allows you to access the credit card platform, allows customers to locate your booth in the Cookie Finder, and ensures that no locations get overbooked.

Show your GSSI pride with our new troop t-shirts and crewneck sweatshirts! Each shirt features the GSSI servicemark on the front, and you can include your troop number on the right sleeve. We have a small stock of t-shirts in the shop, but they do not include a troop number. Orders may be placed over the phone, by emailing support@girlscouts-gssi.org, at the shop, or by mailing a check with your order form. The last order will be placed on February 1.
