Magazine and Candy/Nut Sales
Wow, is it really that time of season again!! Girl Scout time that is!
I am very excited for this year to begin. There is so much going on and planned its hard to keep track of it all. One of the first items on our agenda is our fall fundraiser. And if you know me by now, I am not big on fund raising. Especially in this economy where money is tight and jobs are slim.
However this year, there are many things that my troop wants to do. From field trips to the pumpkin patch, to camp outs at the Zoo. With your help we can make these things happen. Some of the proceeds of each sale goes directly to help support the cost of these trips. With every can of candy sold, we will receive $1. And with every magazine sale, our troop will receive $1.50. This may sound little in the beginning, but honestly, the amount adds up quickly.
The biggest project we will be working on this year is raising funds so our troop girls can purchase new items for the new JOHNSTON PUBLIC LIBRARY-CHILDREN'S WING. The girls would like to earn money to help purchase meaningful items of their choosing to help make the children's library that much more special. Some of the items they would like to purchase is furniture that is age appropriate and child friendly, puzzles, puppets, headphones and listening equipment, and maybe even books!
Each of the girls will also be participating in a Read-A-Thon as well to help earn money for our troop. I believe this is a great opportunity to help the girls feel a sense of community. Knowing that when they visit, they can really feel as though they were apart of the process of making the library a better place for everyone.
So, if you would like to purchase any of the items you see below, or order a subscription to a magazine, please feel free to contact me or any of the girls in our troop!! We will be happy to help you!! I promise you by experience, the candy and nuts are YUMMOLICIOUS!!!!!!
