Participation in Mags&Munchies Will Help My Girl Scout Troop

The GSNC's Mags&Munchies Fall Products Program is a fun, quick, and easy way for Girl Scout Troops to earn money towards trips and programs which girls can participate. Through the sale of magazines and nuts and snacks, Troops can earn Troop Proceeds in the form of money to go towards Troop projects, girl programs and much more. Girl Scouts who Participate also have the opportunity to set goals towards Girl Scout Rewards they would like to earn.


This Council-sponsored money-earning opportunity enables family and friends to support Girl Scout Troops and Girl Scouting in the community.
