Sumptuous chocolate covered raisins, crunchy whole cashews sprinkled with sea salt, luscious dark chocolate mint penguins and tangy fruit slices are just some of the products available in the Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri’s Fall Product Program this year.
The Fall Product Program begins Saturday, October 12, 2013, “GO Day,” and is the best way for your troop to:
- Earn funds early in the year for troop activities; average troop proceeds last year were $128, with some troops earning more than $800
- Grow the confidence, skills and financial competence of your Girl Scouts
- Prepare for the Girl Scout Cookie Program
Initial orders will be taken between Oct. 12-26; additional orders will be taken between Oct. 27-Dec. 1; products will be delivered after Nov. 21, just in time for holiday gift giving; and Fall Product Booths and Peanut Pantries will run from Nov. 21-Dec. 1.
Fall Product is an integral part of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, where girls gain hands-on practice with five skills linked to leadership and financial literacy:
Goal Setting • Decision Making • Money Management • People Skills • Business Ethics
