Girl Scouts of the Southern Appalachians has launched its fall products sale which will extend through Oct. 28. The sale features candy, nuts and magazines. It’s an awesome opportunity for Girl Scouts to enhance their leadership experience.
Participating girls will develop skills in financial literacy and learn how to set goals, make individual and group decisions, craft a unique sales pitch, manage troop proceeds and ethically run a business – all helpful life skills.
Friends and family can choose from several varieties of candy and nuts that range from $7 to $10. You also can order or renew your favorite magazine subscriptions through the online program. GSCSA and local Girl Scouts receive a portion of the subscription fees. Not only are you getting a great magazine, but you are also supporting Girl Scouts in your local community and helping to provide programs, adult training and support for our camps.
For each $7 donation received after Oct. 11, we will send one can of nuts or package of chocolates to military troops serving overseas, through our partnership with Friends of the Troops.
Every purchase of fall product is an investment in girls, and their leadership capabilities, in your community, with 100 percent of the net revenue staying local. If you are interested in purchasing any of the items we offer and have not been visited by a Girl Scout in your community, please e-mail your contact information (name, address, zip code, and phone number) to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can call 800-474-1912, and the council can connect you with a troop in your area.
The Girl Scout Council of the Southern Appalachians has almost 14,000 girl and adult members in 46 counties from southwest Virginia, through eastern Tennessee and northern Georgia. Girl Scouts is open to all girls from kindergarten through their senior year in high school. Girls are welcome to join throughout the year. Info: girlscoutcsa.org or call 800-474-1912.
