The Girl Scout fall product program is happening now

You can buy nuts, candy and magazines from your local Girl Scouts

COLFAX — Almost everyone knows about the Girl Scout cookie program, but what about the fall product program? Every September, Girl Scout troops sell a variety of nuts, candy and magazines to earn startup funds for the new troop year.

Like the cookie program, the fall product program teaches girls five essential skills (goal setting, decision-making, money management, people skills and, business ethics) and leads them to take action and build on these skills. The program is currently running now through Nov. 9 and the community can participate in two ways:

  • If you are interested in purchasing items available through the fall product program, you can go to the Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont website at https://www.girlscoutsp2p.org/en/fall-product/meet-the-fall-product-line.html to find what items are available and to fill out a form at https://girlscoutsp2p.wufoo.com/forms/q1yyzn7c1ndaeft/ for a local troop to contact you.
  • Give back to local food banks by purchasing a can of honey-roasted peanuts to be donated through the council-wide Care to Share service project. This is a great way to show your support for the Girl Scout program while helping those in need. Care to Share purchases can be made the same way as a normal purchase by going to the site above.

For additional information about the fall product program or to learn more about Girl Scouting in your local community, contact info@girlscoutsp2p.org or call 800-672-2148.
