Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines is pleased to announce the top three sellers of the 2018 Fall Product Program, Alyssa Judkins of Durham, Simisola Cambell of Garner, and Jahnvi Patel of Wake Forest. Judkins placed first with $2,496.95 worth of products sold, which included nuts, candies, and new and renewed magazine subscriptions. Cambell placed second with $1,794.00 in sales and Patel placed third with $1,636.00 product sold.
A sister to the Girl Scout Cookie Program, the Fall Product Program is geared towards financial literacy and provides girls with the essentials to grow and develop five key leadership skills while earning proceeds to fund life changing activities and adventures. Girl Scout troops have used proceeds to travel to places like Switzerland and the birthplace of Girl Scouts in Savannah, GA, attend leadership and skill-building events, and give back to the community through take action projects.
“Through the Fall Product Program, girls are able to develop essential skills while also working towards funding unique leadership experiences that help build them into courageous leaders of today and tomorrow,” said Kelly Griffin, product sales director, Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines. “We are excited to honor and celebrate the leaders of this year’s Fall Product Program and proud of the many Girl Scouts who helped make the program such a success.”
During the Fall Product Program, Girl Scouts across central and eastern North Carolina also collected donations for the council’s Treats for Troop program. This program allows customers purchase treats for distribution to deployed and returning military personnel. All donations will be delivered to the office of United Services Organization – North Carolina (USO-NC) based at RDU International Airport in Wake County.
This year’s program also featured enhanced technology applications to help girls develop e-commerce and marketing skills such as designing a virtual storefront and digital avatar, creating marketing content including emails and videos, and tracking their goals online.
