Thank you to our 2018 Mags&Munchies volunteers, and congratulations to our top Girl Scout order takers. Our Girl Scouts and volunteers did a great job speaking up and leading the way!

Everyone knows about Girl Scout Cookies, but you might not know about the magazines, candles and delicious nuts, snacks, and chocolates that are part of our Mags&Munchies program.

Girls have fun earning the patches and helping their troop make start-up money for the fall. Because it’s an easy way for girls to get patches and rewards and troops to earn funds, this program gives our Girl Scout troops a chance to experience new and exciting adventures without having to wait until cookie season. Many troops even consider it a chance to “practice” for Girl Scout Cookie Season.

This sale comes at the perfect time of year, as all of the products sold make for great stocking stuffers and holiday gifts for family, friends, teachers, neighbors and anyone else on your list!

Why Should You Support the Mags&Munchies Program?

The GSNC Mags&Munchies program is a “learn and earn” program. Girl Scout Troops can earn 10-15 percent in proceeds for all of their magazine, nut, snack and photo keepsake sales.

Most importantly, by running their own business girls will learn a lifetime of skills, including:

  • Goal Setting
  • Decision Making
  • Money Management
  • People Skills
  • Business Ethics

Support your local Girl Scout by purchasing nuts, snacks, magazines, stainless steel bottles, thermal tumblers or candles through our Mags&Munchies program between August 24 and October 22.
