Fall Product Program

Please contact us at info@gsnorcal.org if you have any questions.

Everyone knows we sell cookies in the winter, but did you know we also sell nuts and chocolate in the fall? Our fall product program gives troops a chance to earn startup money without having to wait until cookie sale time in the winter. They can use the funds they earn to enjoy new and exciting opportunities right away!

The Fall Product Program also emphasizes 5 key skills for girls to learn: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics.

Online Program

We're switching to a new Online Program ordering platform! Through M2, girls can invite their family and friends to support GSNorCal through online sales! After the girls register and customize their own online sales page, they can send emails inviting family and friends to support their product sales efforts by purchasing from a variety of products, such as nuts, chocolates, and magazines.

With M2, she can:

 Manage online store at her virtual office

 Build their own Me2 avatar, with a cool new feature this year!

 Girls can earn a patch of their customized avatar! 

 Customers can have products shipped or delivered

Talk to your troop fall product program chair and ask how to get started today! The M2OS online program makes it even easier for girls to fundraise for their troops while learning how to utilize technology as a tool. Girls just need to register online, create their Me2 Avatar, and enter email addresses of friends and family. With just a few clicks of your keyboard, you can reach all your customers, making you an online entrepreneur!  M2OS is mobile-optimized, so you can create your Me2 Avatar, send emails, etc., on your tablet or smartphone.

Help your Girl Scout set up her online store starting September 28th.

Care to Share

Care to Share is a council-sponsored service project benefiting our local communities.

 

Girls Scouts offers its customers the option to purchase nut and candy products for $5 each to be donated to the military or a local food bank. Care to Share items are excluded from online sales.

Girl Scouts of Northern California's council offices will make the arrangements to have the items delivered to the appropriate organizations.

  • Customers receive a donation receipt for their purchase
  • Girls Selling 3 or more Care to Share will receive a Share patch
  • Girls selling 10 or more Care to Share will earn the Rainbow Heart Charm
  • Council will donate nuts/candies to local food banks (30%–40%) and military organizations (60%–70%)

Thanks for your support and participation in the Fall Product Program!
