The Treats & Reads Program is a simple way for troops to get a
head start on funding their treasuries so girls can enjoy great
program activities they help choose. When girls and troops participate
in product sale programs, they learn to work as a team to accomplish
goals while building confidence in their abilities. All girls who
are registered for the 2018-2019 membership year are eligible to
participate in the program.
Members of the community can purchase the following items to support
local Girl Scouts and their troops:
Nut and candy items
This year, Girl Scouts of Connecticut is partnering with a new
company, M2 Media Group, for magazines. M2 offers us an advanced
online platform for girls to use to sell magazines, nuts, and candy.
We will continue to use Ashdon Farms for our nut and candy items.
Customers will have the option to support girls by purchasing Treats
& Reads in person on the order card or online.
Treats & Reads is an integral part of the Girl Scout Leadership
Experience, contributing to the 4 pillars through entrepreneurship and financial
literacy. Girls who participate not only earn money for their troop
treasuries but also learn skills that will help them succeed in their
own lives and communities.
