Fall Product Program

Things to love about Fall: Crunchy leaves, fall colors, chilly air, pumpkin spice, and the Girl Scout Fall Product Program! The Fall Product Program is an annual event that helps girls set and achieve goals at the beginning of their Girl Scout year by selling products like magazines, nuts and candy. Plus, it's a great opportunity to stock up on stocking stuffers and holiday gifts for family, friends, teachers, neighbors and anyone else on your list.

Why Participate?

It's not just another fundraiser! Like the Cookie Program, the Fall Product Program provides an important ingredient for leadership by helping girls develop the 5 Skills:

Goal setting
 Decision making
 Money management
 People skills
 Business ethics

100% of funds generated from this program go toward helping girls of the Chesapeake Bay build important skills by providing activities and opportunities through Girl Scouting.
