Fall Product Sale

October 2-18, 2015

The Fall Product Sale (chocolates and nuts) is a ‘friends and family sale’ that provides troops the opportunity to earn start-up funds for the new Girl Scout membership year. Troops earn $1 per item sold, and all proceeds stay within Girl Scouts of Alaska to benefit local girls. The Fall Product Sale give girls the opportunity to develop and hone the Five Skills:

Girls can dream of new experiences, and gain the confidence to make them a reality.
