Treats & Reads
During the Treats & Reads Program, Girls Scouts market and sell candy, nuts and magazines/eBooks to fund their own troop’s activities. The program also provides them hands-on experience with five essential skills that will help them grow into leaders in their own lives, in the community, in business and in the world.
When you make a Treats & Reads purchase, you’re helping the next generation of entrepreneurs get an important taste of what it takes to be successful – setting goals, making decisions, managing money, working with other people and ensuring ethical practices.

The Project Thank You program is a Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri service project that lets our community donate treats to the USO of Missouri and Operation Food Search. This program provides Girl Scouts with the opportunity to learn about philanthropy. For each $5 donation, we will gift a treat to these organizations.
Customers will be able to donate to Project Thank You in two ways:
The top 10 Project Thank You Sellers will earn the opportunity to hand donated treats at the USO Holiday Block Leave event in December. This event is subject to change.
