To our customers ...
Many Girl Scouts participate in the Fall Product Sale to learn valuable business skills and raise start-up funds for their troop. Because of product sales, many of Lakes and Pines troops are self sustaining. Girls use funds earned from product sales to pay for activities, do community service projects, and much more. Want products but don't know a Girl Scout? Contact us, we're here to help!
