fall product sale

The 2013 Fall Product Sale begins on September 20, 2013.  Girls must be registered Girl Scout members and have parent permission before participating in the Fall Product Sale.

 

What is the Fall Product Sale?

The Fall Product Sale is a friends-and-family sale that helps your troop earn start-up money, but also helps support the Girl Scout Council.  Proceeds from the Fall Product Sale help the council:

  • Recruit and train adult volunteers to lead girls.
  • Provide financial assistance to make sure Girl Scouting is available to all girls.
  • Maintain council properties and camps.

Learning Life Skills

Through the Fall Product Sale, Girl Scouts have fun and earn money for their troops while developing five essential life skills:

  • Goal Setting
  • Decision Making
  • Money Management
  • People Skills
  • Business Ethics

During the Fall Product Sale, girls are members of a team working toward a common goal with each girl striving to do her best.  Every local troop/group is encouraged to set a realistic goal for the Fall Product Sale.  Goals may include “fun and learning” goals (like a field trip or troop celebration) and “giving back” goals, like community service projects or supporting a cause they care about.  Although adults play a critical role in helping girls set realistic goals, girls should decide together on the goals for their troop.

Ways to Participate:


Nuts & Candy

  • At the beginning of the Fall Product Sale, each girl will receive a nut and candy order card.  Girls can use the order card to collect nut and candy order promises from friends and family.  Payment is collected at the time of delivery.
  • Girls can also collect nut and candy order promises through the QSP/Nut Online Program.  Girls should make arrangements to make delivery and collect payment in person for online nut and candy promises.
  • The Troop to Troop program is back by popular demand for 2013! Through the Troop to Troop Program, customers can purchase a $5 nut/candy item to be donated to the men and women serving in the military. Girls who sell 3 or more Troop to Troop items will earn the 2013 Troop to Troop patch.

Magazine Orders

  • In each girl’s Fall Product Sale packet, she will receive a magazine catalog and order forms.  Girls can use the catalog and order forms to collect magazine orders from friends and family.  Payment is collected when the order is placed.
  • Families can also use the QSP/Nut Online Program to send emails to friends and families.  The email contains a link so friends and family around the country can shop online and order subscriptions to support their Girl Scout.
  • Address booklets are also included in each girl’s packet.  Girls simply complete the included post cards with the names and addresses of 10 friends and family members and turn it into their troops at the end of the sale.  A direct mailing is sent later to those customers.  (Addresses should be outside of the county the girl lives in.)
