Girl Scouts Fall Product Program Kicks Off September 24

GLEN CARBON – September 24 marks the kickoff for Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois’ Nut, Candy and Magazine
(NCM) Program! Girl Scouts will be selling tasty treats and magazine subscriptions through October 23rd.

“As troops start their new Girl Scout year, the annual NCM Program is a great way for them to raise start-up funds,” said
Katie Grayling, Director of Product Programs. “In addition to raising funds for their activities, girls also learn valuable life
skills in the process,” Grayling added.

Girls who participate in the NCM Program learn 5 life skills – goal setting, decision making, money management, people
skills and business ethics – while raising money for their Girl Scout adventures. Girl Scouts today dreams big and want to
make the world a better place. When you make a purchase from a Girl Scout, you are being a champion for girl ambition
and helping her pursue her dreams.

Customers will be able to select from usual favorites – like Whole Cashews or the yearly commemorative tin filled with
Mint Treasures. There are also some options that are exclusively online, like Almond Cran-Orange Crunch or Mint
Treasures in 2018-2021 tins (if you need to fill in your collection). There’s sure to be a snack for everyone’s taste buds!

The Nut, Candy and Magazine Program runs through October 23rd. To find a participating Girl Scout in your area, call us

Southern Illinois. Call 800-345-6858 or email [email protected]. Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois is a not-for-
