For Volunteers

Girl Scouts of Nassau County's Mags&Munchies Program is a fun, quick, and easy way for Girl Scout troops to earn money for projects, trips, girl programs and so much more. It's easy to earn start-up funds for your troop! A troop of 10 girls can easily earn from $200 to over $1000! The key to success is for each girl to participate.  

By purchasing nuts, snacks, and magazines, families, and friends can support Girl Scout troops and Girl Scouting in our community.
 

Mags&Munchies Program Troop Proceeds

Okay Junior troops and older, it’s time for you to take a troop vote… Does your troop want to earn the Girl Rewards or opt out in favor of higher troop proceeds? Many older girl troops vote for more money to fund a big trip or service project. The opt-out form is available on the GSNC's Online Community (OLC).  
 

Mags&Munchies Program Girl Rewards

Should your Girl Scouts opt to earn the girl rewards, your girls will have the opportunity to earn an assortment of fun, girl chosen rewards.

Check out all the awesome rewards our girls can earn.
 

Mags&Munchies Training

Troop Manager Training
All Troop Managers need to attend a Mags&Munchies training this Fall. Mags&Munchies Service Unit Chairs will be hosting training in their communities for Troop Mags&Munchies Managers in August and September.

GSNC will also be offering optional virtual training webinars. Watch the Mags&Munchies Volunteer section of the OLC for the schedule.

 

How Girl Scouts Can Sell

Online and in-person order taking begins on October 1st. While there will be no booth sales this year, we encourage girls to use their M2 avatar to reach out to people digitally. The avatars can be customized and a voice message can be added!

When selling in person all Girl Scouts must follow GSNC’s guidance on in-person contact at the time of the program to keep themselves and others safe.

Going the Extra Mile 
Everyone knows that a big part of Girl Scouts is giving back. This year, people can donate snacks, candy, and magazines to Operation: Stop Hunger. Customers who want to support Girl Scouts, but don’t want to make a purchase can donate money through your M2 website. Troops earn proceeds on these donations. They count towards girls’ nut/snack reward items and girls can earn the Care to Share patch by getting at least three items donated.
