Cookies will arrive beginning Monday, February 6! Please ensure you have communicated with your Service Unit Cookie Chair and know the date, time, and location for your troop's initial order pick-up. Please read in Cookies 101 about cookie pick-up for initial orders.

Key information to remember for cookie pick-ups:
  • Please ensure families know when and where to pick up their orders from the troop.
  • Count the cookies with the person receiving the order before they take them.
  • Remember to write receipts for all cookie and money transactions.
  • Please feel free to contact your SUCC with any questions.
NOTE: Evansville Cookie Warehouse Change
For troops picking up in Evansville, the warehouse location is at Shetler Moving & Storage, 1253 Diamond Ave, Evansville, IN 47711. This is different from past years, so please ensure your troop knows about this change. This applies to both initial orders and Friday Cookie pick-ups.
