For the past few weeks girls have been out and about all around Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways jurisdiction participating in the Girl Scout cookie sale program. It is almost time for troops to submit their initial cookie orders into eBudde!
Here are three questions troop volunteers may have about the ordering process:
How do I submit my troop’s initial order?
In eBudde, click the initial order tab. Click on a girl’s name. At the bottom of the screen, boxes will open up. Fill in the quantity by specific variety that she sold. Click OK on the right side of the screen when you are done. Click SAVE. Move on to the next girl. Once you have placed orders for all of your girls, you can order cookies for booth sales or additional sales. Be sure to place orders in the booth sale row only. If you do not order enough cookies, don’t worry! You can always get MORE cookies. Then once complete, click submit order.
How do I order initial rewards?
Click the rewards tab. Click fill out for initial rewards. It will list every girl in your troop and how many recognitions she earned. eBudde will give you a total of the items you ordered. Click submit and that’s all! Your service unit cookie coordinator can let you know when these rewards arrive to give to your girls!
Where will the council gift of caring cookies be donated?
This year’s Council Gift of Caring (CGOC) will be donated to the Military Family Assistance Center. Girls that receive 15+ donated boxes of cookies for the Council Gift of Caring Program will earn the GOC patch shown on their order card.
