About The Fall Product Program

This year's Fall Product Program began September 16, 2013. The Fall Product Sale is a GSCV sponsored program that enables Girl Scout troops to earn funds at the beginning of their Girl Scout Year to use towards making the world a better place. Girls have the opportunity to grow their skills of goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics through product sales. This year's theme, "Be Your Best You!", is aimed at helping girls grow in these 5 key areas.  

 

There are many great new things happening this year during the Fall Product Sale from our new vendor, Ashdon Farms/QSP to bigger and better recognitions for the girls we have revamped the entire program and we are excited to see girls grow in their five skills while having lots of fun along the way. Still have questions? Learn more about the Fall Sale with our Family Information Flyer.

Goal Setting Activities

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!  Fall Product isn’t as simple as saying “sell 350 boxes of cookies” since the product line is varied. But by leveraging all product options, the girls can discover, connect and take action to meet their troop’s funding needs.

 

Be a Goal Getter!

The initial orders are in! Between October 11th and November 2nd, any Girl Scout participating in the Fall Product Sale who sells either 15 nut/candy items or 3 ONLINE magazine subscriptions will be eligible for our goal getter incentive! Download the order card for information about this year's prize. For a list of FAQs about this year's Goal Getter, click here.

Girl Scouts of the Commonwealth of Virginia has partnered with the Central Virginia USO for the 2013-14 Girl Scout membership year for the first ever council-wide Operation Appreciation.

Our goal this year is to donate 5,000 cans of nuts from this year's fall product sale. To make things easier on you, we are going to handle the transportation and delivery to the USO. A presentation of all the nuts donated through Operation Appreciation will occur at the Richmond International Airport on a date to be determined once the Fall Product Sale ends in November. We hope you will be able to join us as we spread joy to the men and women who serve our country by letting them know we care.

Here are some tools we've created to help you at your booth sales that are available for download:

We believe that Operation Appreciation will give Girl Scouts the opportunity to see how their hard work and dedication to Girl Scouting makes the world a better place, one soldier at a time. Won't you join us?

 

Troop Resources

The Fall Product Sale Program is managed in the Nut-e web based system by Troop, Service Unit and Association volunteers. It is also the system used by council to order product as well as rewards. The Service Unit Fall Product Chair will be sure the troop is provided login information. Registered girls names will be uploaded prior to the sale start date though newly registered girls can be easily added as they join your troop.  Use the links below for the Troop Nut-e User manual (which is also accessible from within the system) and the web link address for Nut-e.
