safe, it’s more fun.

Partner with adults
Adults must accompany Girl Scout
Daisies, Brownies and Juniors when they are taking orders, selling or
delivering product. Girls grades 6-12 must be supervised by an adult
when selling door-to-door and must never sell alone. Adults should be
present at a cookie booth in any public place at all times.
Always have a plan for safeguarding money,
and avoid walking around with large amounts of it or keeping it at
home or school. Give proceeds to supervising adults, who should
deposit it as directed by your Girl Scout council as soon as possible.
Do not enter
Never enter the home or vehicle of a person
when you are selling or making deliveries. Avoid selling to people in
vehicles or going into alleys.
Sell in the daytime
Sell only during daylight hours,
unless accompanied by an adult.
Girls’ names, addresses, or email
addresses should never be given out to customers. Use a group contact
number or address overseen by an adult for customers to request
information, reorder or give comments. Protect customer privacy by
not sharing their information except for the product sale. Girls
should never take credit card numbers.
Be safe on the road
Always follow safe pedestrian
practices, especially when crossing at intersections or walking along
roadways. Be aware of traffic when unloading product and passengers
Be Net wise
Take the GSUSA Internet Safety
Pledge before going online and follow the specific guidelines
related to marketing online. Girl Scouts cannot collect money online.
