How Does the Program Work?

How Does the Program Work?

Girls can ask friends, family and neighbors to help support her during the sale. Customers can purchase delicious nut/candy items that will be delivered just in time for the holidays! They can also purchase magazine subscriptions/renewals, along with photo keepsakes.

Girls can take their sales to the next level by signing up for the online portion of the program. They will have the ability to email their customers and ask them to purchase their items directly online and the items will be mailed directly to the customer!

Girl Scouts and their families should work together to decide their level of participation! Best of luck!
