Product Sales

By selling Girl Scout products to friends and family, you can develop valuable life skills like goal setting, money management, people skills, business ethics and teamwork – while you have fun! The Girl Scouts of Rhode Island, Inc. sponsors two product sales each year. All Girl Scouts – from Daisies to Ambassadors – can participate. Only troops that have participated in both product sales can do any additional fundraising.

The Girl Scout Cookie Sale
girls at booth saleThe $700 million Girl Scout Cookie Program is the largest girl-led business in the country. In fact, many successful business women today say they got their start selling Girl Scout Cookies! In our council, girls can sell Girl Scout cookies from late December through the end of March. Some troops choose to sell “directly” – boxes of cookies are immediately available to customers. Other troops choose to take orders from customers and fulfill them once all the orders are in.

The QSP/Be a Reader Magazine & Ashdon farms/Candy & Nut Sale
This sale of magazine subscriptions and renewals and high quality nuts and candies is held each September/October. The nuts and candy arrive just in time for Thanksgiving and make great holiday gifts, hostess gifts and teacher “thank you” gifts. By holding a product sale early in the troop year, troops can raise the funds they need for community service projects or field trips.

Councilwide Service Project

Each year GSRI selects a local organization to be the recipient of our annual Cookie Sale Community Service project. Girls can choose to donate a portion of their troop cookie sale proceeds to the organization. It's a great way for the girls to give back to our community! This year we have selected The Matty Fund to be our service project beneficiary.

The mission of The Matty Fund is soldierto provide family resources, raise epilepsy awareness, promote patient safety and improve the quality of life for children and families living with epilepsy.

I'm On a Diet!

As always, you can support Girl Scouting and stay on your diet by indicating to the girl selling cookies that you'd like to purchase a box of Girl Scout Cookies for a member of our armed forces serving overseas.

This "taste of home" is always appreciated by our servicemen and women.
