Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont Kicking off Nut and Magazine Program September 30

The Dispatch, KY, reports that Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont will kick off its annual nut and magazine program September 30.

From September 30 through October 16, Girl Scouts from local troops will ask families, friends and community members to place an order for nuts and magazines. Products will be delivered between November 9-30.

All proceeds support local Girl Scouts and provide start-up money to new and existing troops in the community. Approximately 3,500 girls participate in this activity. The money earned will allow girls to take trips, support troop activities, attend camp, participate in regional, national and international destinations and conduct community service projects.

This year, the nut and candy varieties include chocolate-covered pretzels, almonds, raisins and peanuts, as well as whole cashews, cranberry nut mix, fruit slices, salsa mix, peanut butter dreams, deluxe pecan clusters, honey roasted peanuts and hot cajun crunch. Prices range from $5 to $7.

Anyone interested in purchasing products who is not contacted by a Girl Scout can email contact information (name, address, ZIP code and phone number) to fallproduct@girlscoutsp2p.org.
