Girl Scouts of Orange County: Fall Products Preview and Giveaway! | @GirlScoutsOC #Giveaway

You might see your local Girl Scout Troops at the grocery stores earlier this year!  No, not for cookies.  Girl Scouts are branching out into a new venture for their Fall Program.  

You can expect to see a wide variety of:
  • Nuts
  • Chocolates
  • Photo keepsakes 
  • Magazines
The sales are not just to raise money for the troop activities but to teach our girls the importance of life skills such as:
  • Goal setting
  • Money management
  • Decision making
  • People skills
  • Business ethics
  • Learning how to give back as they donate snacks and nuts to food banks and magazines to the military through the "Care to Share" program.

Girl Scouts in Orange County will begin selling nuts, chocolates, photo keepsakes and magazines door-to-door and online beginning on October 5 and at booth locations throughout Orange County from November 7-16. Customers can choose from twelve varieties of nuts and chocolates, including the new English Butter Toffee and Salsa Mix, or they may order online from a selection of twenty five varieties, including the exclusive Girl Scout tin and new corporate gift tins – perfect for holiday gifts! Customers can order or renew their favorite magazines from over 600 magazine titles (print and digital) at up to 90% off newsstand price, AND customers can create and purchase personalized greeting cards, calendars, photo books and more through the new To Remember This website.

So, when a Girl Scout asks you if you’d like to make a purchase this fall, look her in the eye, ask her questions about her goals, and support her entrepreneurial spirit. You may be helping a future CEO with her very first sale!

Don’t see a Girl Scout? Don’t worry! Just contact and Girl Scouts of Orange County will connect you with a local Girl Scout that you can make your purchase from.
