The Fall Opportunity Sale (FOS) is a great way for Troops to generate proceeds early in the Girl Scout year to ensure lots of girl-led activities happen all year long. Additionally, FOS introduces girls to financial skills they will use throughout their lives.
Girl Scouts partners with the Trophy Nut Company to offer a wide variety of great-tasting nut and candy products. New this year is the GORP Trail Mix with a mix of peanuts, raisins, chocolate chips, and candy coated chocolate. GORP stands for Good Old Raisins and Peanuts. The GORP Trail Mix is priced at $10.00 for a 30 ounce value size jar. More information can also be found, here.
Remember to promote the “Care to Share” option that allows customers the option of making a purchase that gives something back to others. Care to Share product donations will be given to the Kansas Food Bank. The Kansas Food Bank distributes food for hunger-relief and programs throughout Kansas.
Thank you so much for your dedication and commitment to Girl Scouts! Together we are building girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place.
