How to Support

Girl Scouts and customers have a variety of options to participate and support the fall product program.

Nuts and Candy

Girl Delivery (online) 
This option is highly recommended for local customers. Girls can send an email link to their customers. Customers can purchase the sixteen items offered on the order card and pay for them online. Girls will deliver items to customers so there are no shipping charges. Items should be delivered to customers by November 25, 2020. This is the most contactless option while still maintaining a personal touch.

Direct Ship (online)
This option is recommended for customers girls cannot deliver to, those who can’t find their favorite items on the order card and those who wish to get items earlier than November 25. Girls can send an email link to their customers. Customers have a larger product selection to choose from and pay for items online. Items are delivered to customers based on the shipping speed selected at checkout. This is the most contactless option.

In-person
Girls can sell to friends and family in-person using their order card. Customers can pay for items with cash or check at the time the order is taken. GSHCC does not recommend accepting checks in amounts over $60. Checks should be made payable to “GSHCC Troop #___”.

Magazines

Girls can send an email link to their customers. Customers pay for magazines online and receive their orders within six to eight weeks. With hundreds of titles to choose from, there is something for everyone.

Project Share

In addition to these important business skills, Girl Scouts will also learn philanthropy through Project Share. All Project Share nut donations will be donated to local food banks. Girls who receive four Project Share nut donations will earn a Care to Share patch.
