NEW this year to the online store are easy-to-grow organic veggies! These popular varieties come in ready-to-plant biodegradable containers and make great gifts. Customers can also purchase new, virtually indestructible tumblers that are BPA-free and microwave/dishwasher safe. They can even be printed with the officially licensed logo of your favorite NCAA sports team or one of many other designs.
Fall Product Program
The Fall Product Program enables girls to earn funds at the beginning of the Girl Scouts year so they can begin planning their service projects, adventures and experiences.
This program is an integral part of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, where girls gain experience with the five skills linked to leadership and financial literacy: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics. Plus, it prepares girls for the work — and fun! — of the Girl Scout Cookie Program.
Meet Coco! This year’s mascot is Coco the cat and she is looking forward to becoming part of your family!
The online program begins in August and runs through Oct. 15. In-person sales take place Sept. 15-Oct. 15. Troops and girls can choose their level of participation and may begin the sale anytime during the published start and end dates.
Fall Products in a Nutshell
We offer a variety of products that can be purchased either directly from a participating Girl Scout or using her online website.
The nuts and candy order card that girls use to sell directly to customers provides 16 choices ranging in price from $6 to $10. The girls may also sell keepsake gifts and magazine subscriptions directly to customers. Customers have the option to purchase new magazine subscriptions or renew existing ones.
Girls’ websites will offer additional purchasing options — 30 varieties of nuts and candy in all! This includes favorites like Dulce De Leche Owls, pistachios, macadamia nuts and the Gourmet Caramel Corn with Almonds and Pecans. When shopping online, customers can also purchase photo keepsakes that make great gifts, and the online store provides hundreds of magazine choices besides those girls can offer in person.
We have partnered with the Greater Jacksonville USO to distribute donations to military members locally and across the globe. Each donation will help send a gift to an active duty service member, and customers can choose their $5 donation: a can of nuts or a magazine subscription voucher.
Girls who sell $25 in donations to Operation USO will earn a “Share 2017-2018” patch. Donations are fulfilled through the vendor, and the USO distributes items to military members — it’s super easy for girls and customers! Girls also earn proceeds and rewards for Operation USO donations.
