You Can Make a Difference

Hurricane Florence was a massive storm that hit parts of North Carolina and South Carolina, bringing with it historic amounts of water that caused several areas to have to evacuate more than once over the past few weeks. In the spirit of the Girl Scout Law, many Girl Scouts have reached out, asking how they can help their sister Girl Scouts and their families, as well as our council colleagues and their loved ones, recover from this natural disaster.

In response to recent natural disasters, GSUSA is lifting fundraising restrictions to enable girls to raise money for recovery efforts.

As we work to rebuild, our hearts and prayers go out to our Girl Scout sisters, their communities, and partners affected by the recent storms. We don’t need a natural disaster to know how strong our Movement is, but it’s heartening during such times to see our mission in action, as Girl Scouts work together to make our world a better place.
