Girl Scouts “Go Bright Ahead” with a MAG-nificent Program

Mags&Munchies helps Girl Scouts become entrepreneurs while giving back to their communities

GARDEN CITY, NY (SEPTEMBER 2022) — Girls across Nassau County are excited and prepared to learn financial skills while selling delicious treats as Girl Scouts of Nassau County (GSNC) launches its annual Mags&Munchies program from September 30 through November 6. Each year, Mags&Munchies gives Girl Scouts of all ages the opportunity to sell magazines, assorted snacks, and collectible tins full of tasty treats to help them learn business skills and become entrepreneurial experts ahead of the Girl Scout Cookie Season.   

“The Mags&Munchies program allows Girl Scouts to contribute to their communities and earn rewards for their troops while learning important business and leadership skills through in-person and online sales,” said Randell Bynum, chief executive officer of Girl Scouts of Nassau County. “Our Girl Scouts are very excited for this year’s program and this year’s theme—“Go Bright Head”—which encourages them to take action and give back.”

Just like stretching before a game, Girl Scouts can flex their salesperson skills before the Girl Scout Cookie Season and practice the five key entrepreneurial leadership lessons, including goal setting, decision making, people skills, money management and business ethics.

New to this year’s program is the 2022 Holiday Tin, which depicts a tiny chickadee eating from a mitten and is filled with mouth-watering chocolate-covered pretzels. The new Retro Memory Box Tin, which comes with the Girl Scouts’ beloved Mint Treasures snack, and honey roasted peanuts are also new to this year’s product lineup.

All products are available in-person from a Girl Scout as well as through their online store. Girls will build an online store, where they will create an avatar that looks just like them and record a personalized message that they friends and family can watch. There are also many other ways for girls to engage in the program, including earning virtual rewards for their avatars and tracking their progress.

Each Girl Scout will accept orders through their digital store in addition to taking paper orders. Customers can also subscribe to hundreds of magazines or renew current subscriptions to benefit their favorite Girl Scout and her troop.

In addition, girls will continue to support Island Harvest as part of its ongoing efforts to end hunger on Long Island. Each Mags&Munchies purchase will give customers the option to donate to Care to Share and send nuts and snacks to local food pantries on Long Island through Island Harvest.
