fun way to help your troop/group earn those much needed start-up
funds. Earn money for registration, troop materials, etc. Plus, the

When and where is Initial Order delivery?
delivery is Nov. 10-13. Locations vary by region and you will be
informed of your location at training.
Will we use a software system for ordering, calculating sales and
Yes, the software system is called
M2OS. It can handle both nut and magazine orders. September training
dates will be posted on the GSGLA website (www.girlscoutsla.org).
Will an ACH (Automatic Clearing House) system to collect funds due
Yes, the debit will be on December 5, so make
sure you have sufficient funds to cover the amount due at least 7 days
before this debit date. Processing times for deposits vary; do not
wait until the day before the debit is scheduled to deposit money into
your troop account; You should be depositing promptly and frequently
and encouraging your parents to be turning over funds they/their
daughter have/has collected promptly and frequently.
If I am a Juliette, can I still participate in the Fall
Yes. Reach out to the Product Sales Manager in
your area so she can put you in touch with the SU Fall Product Chair
Will there be a Fall Gift of Caring Program?
customers may make monetary GOC donations (in $5 increments). GSGLA
will then purchase nuts to be sent to the LAX USO, local food banks
through the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, and Operation Gratitude.
Gift of Caring receipts are available for those that request one.
What about the magazine portion of the sale?
magazine orders are taken online. When a girl (with her parent) sets
up her storefront in M2OS she will be emailing family and friends
about her sale. A link in that email will direct her customers to her
store where they can choose to order nut/candy products and/or
order/renew magazine subscriptions. For magazines, the troop will
receive 20% of the total dollar amount sold. This portion of the
program is linked directly with the nut/candy portion, she doesn’t
need to do anything different when setting up her storefront, her
customers will be sent links to both shopping areas.
I understand there is a Service Unit Bonus. What is that?
We know you have big plans to support your troops next year, but
may be a little short on funds to do that. Here’s an answer. Set a
service unit goal of at least 40 units per girl selling and organize
your team on how to achieve it. Service units who increase the number
of girls participating by 10 girls or 10% over last year (whichever is
less) AND have a Per Girl Average of 40 units or higher, will receive
proceeds per number of units sold.
What if I have additional questions?
You can check
the GSGLA website for updates or contact your Service Unit Fall
Product Chair, who will contact your regional Product Sales Manager as needed.
