Nuts About Reading
|GSEP has decided that the Fall Product Program, also known as Nuts About Reading (NAR), a time-consuming sale that requires much energy and effort on the part of volunteers, parents, and girls with minimal financial benefits was not a good investment of resources. Therefore, we will not participate in a Fall Product Program for Membership Year 2019-2020, giving volunteers time to focus on the start of their Girl Scout year!
What does this mean for your troop?
Troops are allowed, for Membership Year 2019-2020, to plan and host troop fundraising efforts during the fall season, as long as these efforts comply with the latest Volunteer Essentials guidelines and do not involve the sale of any products that compete with our previously offered NAR products. For example, troops cannot engage in the sale of chocolate, nuts, or magazine products from October to December 2019. All troops that host fundraising events or efforts must participate in the 2020 Cookie Program.
