Obtaining Cookies
A Cookie Cupboard is a location that maintains a supply of cookies for troops and individuals to
pick up from after the initial order delivery. Some cupboards are run by the Council, others are run
by individual communities or troops. Cookies can be purchased outright or picked up on
consignment to sell at a Cookie Booth.
