Girl Scout Fall Products Program Starts October 1

Starting October 1, Girl Scouts in southeastern Virginia and northeastern North Carolina will be selling nuts, candies and magazines as part of the fall products program to raise start-up funds for troop activities and community service projects. Girls will be contacting friends and families to take orders, and they will have nuts and candies for sale at booths outside of local businesses starting November 4. If you don't know a Girl Scout, contact or 757-410-1436 to be put in touch with a Girl Scout participating in the program.

This year's lineup of treats includes a new Black Forest Trail Mix, along with customer favorites from previous years- English Butter Toffee, Hot Cajun Crunch, Cranberry Nut Mix, Deluxe Pecan Clusters and more. Nuts and candies range in price from six to eight dollars per item. Chocolate covered pretzels and chocolate mint candies will be available in collectible tins. Customers can also purchase and renew magazine subscriptions through Girl Scouts, and Girl Scouts can set up their own online storefronts to sell products online to friends and family.

All proceeds from the Girl Scout Fall Products Program stay in the region to support local Girl Scouts. The fall products program is part of the efforts of Girl Scouts to educate girls in financial literacy and entrepreneurship.

Customers who cannot enjoy nuts and candies but still wish to support the program can purchase items and Girl Scouts will donate them to the USO of Hampton Roads to be given to members of the military.
