Weekly Fall Product Update | Service Units

Girl Scouts of Orange County
Fall Product Program

Saturday, September 21, 2019 – Sunday, November 3, 2019

The Fall Product Program is a fun, easy, and rewarding experience to help Girl Scout troops earn money while building their business savvy and financial literacy skills.

Girls of all ages build self-confidence and develop valuable business skills- such as goal setting, money management, and business ethics- while earning badges, patches, and prizes along the way. Many troops use Product Sales Program funds to support activities, Take Action projects, and field trips.

Still Need to Renew a Girl?
To make sure they can participate in the Fall Product Program, renew your girl today!
