The Girl Scout Fall Product Sale Program begins October 5th and lasts through the end of November with Girl Scouts throughout Monmouth and Ocean counties selling nuts, candy and magazines.
Online PR News – 25-September-2012 – Toms River, NJ – Fall is right around the corner and what better way to kick it off the season than with the Girl Scout Fall Product Sale Program? From October 5th through the end of November, Girl Scouts throughout Monmouth and Ocean counties will sell an array of nuts, candy and magazines – great gifts for the upcoming holiday season. Of course we all enjoy these tasty treats and magazines, but the real gift in buying these items is bestowed upon the Girl Scout.
Girl Scout product sale activities feature age-appropriate lessons that combine business basics with the fun commonly associated with Girl Scouts. The program builds financial literacy and leadership skills as girls actively make discoveries and decisions about marketing, budgeting, customer service and goal setting. When you purchase a can of pistachios from a Girl Scout, you’re helping her learn these important skills that will help her become the strong, confident women she was born to be.
Additionally, the fall product sale program provides a jump start at the beginning of the Girl Scout year for girls to work towards reaching the goals that they have set for themselves. When our girls dream, they dream big. Whether it’s a trip to Europe, robotics competition, or a week at summer day camp, girls decide on a goal, assess the funds necessary to achieve that goal and work together to make it happen. Parents appreciate the program for both the life lessons taught to their daughters, as well as the goals and dreams the girls are able to achieve that might otherwise be out of reach financially.
The excitement about the fall product sale is beginning to swirl as several local Girl Scouts and volunteers are planning a series of nut rallies in our area, designed to motivate sellers and provide information in a fun-filled environment. This year’s fall product sale lineup includes chocolate covered pretzels, mint treasures, whole cashews, pistachios, chocolate covered almonds, a blueberry pomegranate nut crunch, wasabi almonds, chocolate covered raisins, peanut butter bears, deluxe pecan clusters, dark chocolate mint penguins, a cranberry nut mix, honey roasted peanuts and fruit slices.
Girl Scout product sales also support other community organizations and our military. The Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore will continue its “Gift of Caring” program in partnership with the Food Bank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties developed as a service project where each troop/group can donate cookies to worthwhile causes. Girl Scouts in our community will also send nuts, candy and cookies to soldiers overseas. Over the past two years, the Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore has donated more than 6,000 product sale items to help feed those in need both at home and abroad.
