WESTERN NEW YORK – The Girl Scouts of Western New York kicked off their ‘Fall Product Program’ on Monday to help raise funds for programs, community service projects and other special activities.
Group leaders say in addition to helping scouts fund their programs, the fundraiser also gives back to the military through the ‘Share Donation Program’ where customers can choose to purchase items to benefit local military personnel and veterans.
Typically, scouts would travel ‘door-to-door’ to sell their cookies, however because of the COVID-19 pandemic, girls across Western New York are putting their technology skills to the test using an online digital platform to engage close friends, family, and the general public to order candies, nuts, magazines, and other related items.
Program leaders say girls will be not only learn how to sell products online, but will gain money management skills as well.
The community can also support a local Girl Scout by purchasing Thin Mints® Almonds, Peanut Butter Bears, Dulce de Leche Owls, English Butter Toffee, Dark Chocolate Mint Penguins, Dark Chocolate Caramel Caps with Sea Salt, Chocolate Covered Raisins, fat free Fruit Slices, Dill Pickle Flavored Peanuts, Salsa Mix, Whole Cashews with Sea Salt, and NEW this year – Peanut Butter Trail Mix. Prices range from $6 to $40.
The program runs through October 28. For more, visit GSWNY.org.
