Help Girl Scouts Earn This Fall
Everyone knows that we sell Girl Scout Cookies, but did you know we also sell nuts, snacks, magazines and photo keepsakes through our Mags&Munchies program? Each fall, this program gives our Girl Scout Troops a chance to earn funds for new and exciting adventures without having to wait until cookie season.
This sale comes at the perfect time of year, as all of the products sold make for great stocking stuffers and holiday gifts for family, friends, teachers, neighbors and anyone else on your list!
Why Should You Support the Mags&Munchies Program?
The GSNC Mags&Munchies program is a “learn and earn” program. Girl Scout Troops can earn 10-15 percent in proceeds for all of their magazine, nut, snack and photo keepsake sales.
Most importantly, by running their own business girls will learn a lifetime of skills, including:
- Goal Setting
- Decision Making
- Money Management
- People Skills
- Business Ethics
Support your local Girl Scout by purchasing nuts, snacks, magazines or photo keepsakes from her as part of our Mags&Munchies program between August 15 and October 23.
