October 10, 2016


By Amy Vitale, Product Sales Manager

Ready, set, sell! The Fall Product Program is in full-swing, but there’s still time to get in on all the fun. From limited-edition patches to troop proceeds to reaching goals and building finanal literacy skills – there are so many reason to participate! Sign up here to get started!

For those whose sale is underway, here are some quick tips and trips to help make this your most successful sale yet!

Let your customers know what your troop plans to do with the earned proceeds.

Your friends and family are more excited to support you and your troop when they know what their money is supporting!

Reach out to those customers who supported you last year.

When you register, email addresses of those who supported you last year will be waiting for you to resend! How easy is that?

Remind your customers that the holidays are just around the corner.

Magazines subscriptions, nuts and chocolates make great gifts. Our snowman tin is perfect for a teacher gift!

Don’t forget to share your virtual store on Facebook!

Families that share their Girl Scout’s store with their family and friends on social media generated more sales then those that didn’t.

Print and give out your custom business cards.

You can feature your avatar on your cards and give them to those you can’t reach online like your neighbors, teacher, dentist, or hair dresser. The in-person portion of the Fall Product Program runs through October 23!

Make your goal to sell 4 magazine subscriptions, 20 nuts/chocolates, plus send out 12 email invitations.

You will earn 5 patches plus the awesome avatar patch and be in the running for the special once-in-a-lifetime 100 Years of Selling Girl Scout Cookies avatar patch!

Check your order status online.

Checking to see what you have earned so far helps you to keep track of your goals and see what you could earn to guarantee you get what you want as part of our recognitions and patches!

Get credit for your orders.

Ask your family to help you enter your face-to-face nut and chocolate orders on your virtual order card online so these orders are placed and you get credit for them.

Utilize mobile devices!

Your virtual store is mobile optimized so you can take orders face-to-face online with a smart phone so your customers get their orders faster and you don’t have to collect money or make change!

Kick-Off Another Year with Girl Scouts!

October 3, 2016


By: Ga Ming West, Marketing Coordinator

 Summer may be over, but the fun is just getting started with Girl Scouts! We’re excited for all of the new adventures and endless possibilities this program year has to offer. If you’re a returning Girl Scout, welcome back and enjoy reuniting with your troop! If you’re new to Girl Scouts, get ready to follow the fun! Everyone is going to have the best year yet with our awesome lineup of events and activities.

Here’s what’s in store this year!

Fall Product Program and Girl Scout Cookies

Looking to boost your financial skills? You’re in luck! We just kicked-off our Fall Product Program, which runs through November 13, and our Cookie Program will begin in mid-January. These programs are both great opportunities for Girl Scouts to develop the five skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. It’s also a chance for girls to strengthen their financial literacy skills by handling their sale proceeds and deciding how they will spend their earnings on their next troop adventure!

In addition to gaining new skills, girls will have the opportunity to earn their very own custom patch in celebration of our 100th anniversary of girls selling Girl Scout cookies in 2017! To be eligible, girls will need to participate in the 2016 Fall Product Program and 2017 Cookie Sale Program. Find more information on earning the custom avatar patch here.

Council-Sponsored Activities (Training, Events, and More)

Starting up a new year means new fun activities! Looking to find new interests, meet other Girl Scouts, or embark on a new journey? We’ve got something for every girl! From celebrating World Thinking Day to getting outdoors and brushing up on camping skills to participating in a “spooky” trail run this Halloween – there is a new adventure around every corner.

Check out our full lineup of activities on our website!

Council Patch Programs

At Girl Scouts, we focus our program on the Girl Scout Leadership Experience – a collection of activities and experiences girls will have as they discover their passions, connect with others, and take action to achieve their goals! A patch program is one way girls can explore a wide range of topics that interest them. Girl Scouts –North Carolina Coastal Pines offers several patch programs that are specific to our council. We have almost 20 different council patch programs that cover everything from amphibian reptiles to produce grown in North Carolina to the world of dance!

We’re so excited for another year of helping build girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. With us, there are tons of opportunities for you to do big things and discover why it’s awesome to be a girl.  Ready to get in on the fun?
