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 Girl & Family Mags&Munchies Dashboard on the
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.
If your Service Unit does not have a Chair, be on the lookout for
training information provided by Council, via email and on the Troop Manager Mags&Munchies Dashboard on the
OLC, which can be found under the Volunteer Tab and the Programs Tab.
The Troop Manager Dashboard is a great resource to
access important information, forms deadlines, activities related to
the program, videos to use with your troops as well as M2
instructional videos, training slides, and so much more! Make sure to
“follow” the post to stay updated!
For help with the M2 site, Troop Managers can view short Troop Manager M2 Instructional Site videos for
step-by-step instructions of several important tasks.
How Girl Scouts Can Sell
Online and in-person order taking begins on September 30. While
there will be no booth sales, 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 Island Harvest via our Care to Share
Program. 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 $6 items donated. Council will directly deliver
donations to Island Harvest.
Additional deadline dates for Troop Mags&Munchies Managers can be
found in the Mags&Munchies Troop Manager’s Manual and on GSNC’s OLC.
