The 2014 Fall Product Sale Program has begun, but it’s not too late to DIVE IN and BE ACTIVE!!! Girls can earn recognition credit until October 19 by selling nuts and chocolates, magazines and photo keepsakes. Troops earn 20% in proceeds on items sold; an easy way to gain start up funds for your troop! Interested? Contact your Product Sales and Finance Specialist today to get started.
Volunteers who took the Fall Product Sale Program Training received a certificate for FREE Digital Troop Photo Book for their troop. If you have tried to redeem your troop’s certificate and have gotten an error message – do not be alarmed. There are some delays as the vendor gets this exciting new program up and running. Missed one of the council’s in person Fall Sale Trainings and interested in receiving a certificate for a FREE Digital Troop Photo Book? Contact your Product Sales and Finance Specialist to find out how – while supplies last!
In search of excellent Express Cookie Cupboards! Looking ahead to the 2015 Cookie Sale Program, we find that there are a number of openings for Cookie Cupboards in our council. Consider volunteering to take on this vital role of our Cookie Sale. Hosting an Express Cookie Cupboard does not take a great space or time commitment. Receive a cookie shipment once a week during the sale, only when your area troops place a planned order and choose your cupboard as their pick up site. After delivery, troops come and pick up just the cookies that they ordered and there is not much more to do for the week. If troops do not place any orders that week, no cookies are delivered. And there is no additional product on hand to store! This volunteer position would be great for retired or work/stay-at-homes with internet access. Interested? Know someone who could host an Express Cupboard? Need more information? Contact your Product Sales and Finance Specialist.
Thank you to everyone who pre-ordered the new gluten free Trios cookie for the 2015 Cookie Sale. Did your troop miss the opportunity to place a pre-order and participate in this year’s pilot program? It’s not too late! We still have a limited number of cases available. Interested in participating in the Gluten Free Cookie Pilot Program? See all of the details on our website and contact us today!

The Fall Product Sale is a great way to earn start-up funds for troop activities. Girls run their own business: taking orders for nuts, chocolates, and magazines beginning in mid-September and delivering products in late November. Troops earn 20% profit from sales plus girls earn recognitions for selling as few as 10 nut/chocolate items or 2 magazine subscriptions!
We've got some exciting changes to the Fall Product Sale program this year which can help girls increase sales and earn more troop profit!
Every troop who wants to sell Fall Product needs to have an adult volunteer participate in the Training. Volunteers can come to any of the six locations listed below.
