The Fall Product Program is a council-sponsored program that combines educational activities with money earning opportunities for the troops. This program enables troops to earn start up money by selling magazine subscriptions as well as nuts and candy.
It is an excellent opportunity for troops to learn more about goal setting, sales, marketing, and budgeting. It's also a great way to earn income to support Girl Scout troop activities.
2023 Fall Product Program - September 22 - October 16, 2023
This year’s fall product program mascot is the adorable Ocelot! This endangered jungle cat “owns its magic” by using its spots to camouflage in the rainforest!
The ocelot is a medium size wild cat that is efficient at climbing, leaping and swimming. It prefers areas close to water sources with dense vegetation cover and high prey availability. The ocelot's fur is extensively marked with solid black markings on a creamy, tawny, yellowish, reddish gray or gray background color. The spots on the head and limbs are small, but markings on the back, cheeks, and flanks are open or closed bands and stripes. A few dark stripes run straight from the back of the neck up to the tip of the tail. Its neck and undersides are white, and the insides of the legs are marked with a few horizontal streaks. Its round ears are marked with a bright white spot.
Programming focuses on leadership, collaboration and exploring personal values through discovering, connecting and taking action to help girls explore their future potential.
The 5 Skills:
The Fall Product Sale teaches Girl Scouts 5 core skills to grow into leaders in their own life, in business and in the world.
Setting goals is the key to a successful sale. Troops and girls who set goals earn big. Talk about what your plans are for the fall and what the funding would be needed to make it happen. Give your girls the opportunity to fully experience Product Sale Programming and don’t skip the Goal Setting and Decision Making skill building! The Fall Product Sale isn’t as simple as saying “sell 350 boxes of cookies” since the product line is varied. By leveraging all product options, the girls can discover, connect and take action to meet their troop’s funding needs.

Troop Fall Product Girl/Parent Presenation
Adopt-A-Soldier allows customers to show support for military troops serving by donating $6 in order to purchase nuts and candy for military heroes. Operation Gratitude will include your donated nuts and candy in care packages that go out to military troops at home and abroad. Our military women and men will love receiving these special gifts and enjoy a taste of home.
Adopt-A-Soldier nut donations have a separate column on the order card and are entered on the order card just like a nut or candy order. Adopt-A-Soldier orders are placed online along with the rest of your troop's order. For each $6 Adopt-A-Soldier order, a Girl Scout receives credit for one nut and candy sale and the troop earns $1.25. Each Girl Scout will receive a Share patch for five $6 Adopt-A-Soldier candy/nut donations.
