Fall Product Program

Life Skills Developed through our Girl Scout Product Programs

By participating in Girl Scout Product Programs, girls develop valuable life skills such as: goal setting, money management, people skills, business ethics and decision making—all while having fun!

Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England sponsors two product programs each year.  Both the Fall Product Program and the Girl Scout Cookie Program offer amazing opportunities for all those involved, learning the five life skills is just part of the journey!

The 2021 Fall Product Program

This year's theme is "Rise Up!” and the 2021 mascot is the Emperor Penguin.

2021 Dates: The program begins on September 16. Paper orders end on October 29th. Magazines, direct ship nuts/candy, and girl delivered orders can be placed until October 29th.

Who can participate? All Girl Scouts from Daisies through Ambassadors can participate!

Why participate?  Through Girl Scout Product Programs, girls develop five essential skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. In addition, troops get a head start on funding their activities for the year!

About the Program

Each September/October, Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England take orders in person from friends and family for delicious nuts and candy as part of the Fall Product Program. The nuts and candy from Ashdon Farms arrive just in time for Thanksgiving and make great holiday gifts, hostess gifts, and teacher “thank you” gifts.

This year we are partnering with M2 Media for magazines and they have over 600 magazine titles which are available for new subscriptions or renewals. They also offer digital titles and eBook/Audiobooks. Visit the Fall Product Program Items page for more information about all the great things offered during the Fall Product Program.

Fall Recognitions
e-Payments

GSSNE has a new way for troops to process payments for the Fall Product  Program. The ePayment system is available for troops to submit payments directly to GSSNE. The process is user friendly and immediate! Troops simply visit https://sne.gsachonline.com/ when you are ready to make your payment.

Troop steps needed to make an ePayment:
1.  Login using their email and password (create an account if they don't have one). Please note: when setting up a new account, select "unknown" as the service unit and you will need to enter a 5-digit troop number. If your troop number is less than 5 digits, add zeros to the beginning of your troop number. For example, Troop 999 would become Troop 00999.
2.  Enter/update your profile information
3.  Enter troop bank information for each troop you lead. Double-check that your information is correct. 
4.  Choose troop and enter payment amount and submit
5.  Receive an email payment confirmation
6. Troop leaders must immediately send a copy of this email receipt to their Service Unit PPC
7. All payment paperwork must still be submitted to council according to established GSSNE Product Program Policies

Each bounced ePayment (after the first initial bounced payment) made by a troop will incur a $35 fee. Please double-check that your banking information has been entered correctly in the ePayment system before submitting payment to avoid a fee incurred for improper information.
