It is a Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains policy to accept money from a customer only at the time cookies are delivered. Girl Scouts do not take money from customers at the time of order-taking. The one exception is when a customer ONLY orders Gift of Caring Cookies, which will not be delivered to the customer.
Girls are encouraged to only accept personal checks from customers they know. If checks are accepted, they should be made payable to Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains and make sure there is a phone number on the check.
