Fall Sale

Fall Product Sale - QSP, Nuts and Candy

Limited to family, next-door neighbors, and family friends, the Fall Product Sale Program does NOT involve door-to-door selling. The Fall Sale is a way for troops to earn startup money for the year. 

The Fall Product Sale helps girls learn essential life skills, including:

  • Goal setting
  • Decision making
  • Money management
  • People skills
  • Business ethics
