Girl Scouts Launch Annual Fall Program Selling Nuts, Candy & Magazines | WWTI
CICERO, NY (WWTI) – Local Girl Scout Troops recently launched their annual Fall Treats, Reads & More program.
The program helps Girl Scouts work on their leadership and entrepreneurial skills by showcasing their nut and candy magazines to friends, family and other community members so they can purchase the products. Girls can earn special rewards based on the goals they set for themselves and the items they sell during the program.
GSNYPENN CEO Julie Dale said the program empowers girls with valuable life skills.
“During Treats, Reads & More, our Girl Scouts practice the five skills of entrepreneurship: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics,” said Dale. “All profits remain local to our board. We are very grateful to the community for their support during this program.
The funds raised by the girls are used to help the troops start their new year as a member. This will help girls pursue community service projects and reward the highest rewards, take outdoor adventures and trips, earn badges, and offset the costs of programming, supplies and more.
Those interested in purchasing program items can do so in person and online until November 9. Community members can choose to have the items purchased directly or choose from a group of products that can be delivered by the girls themselves.
