April Showers, Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri’s largest community service program, is important to the Girl Scout program and the community at large. Girl Scouts, their troop leaders, families and friends help people in need by collecting personal care items.
April Showers comprises two weekends. First, Girl Scouts go door-to-door, distributing white, recyclable plastic bags throughout the Council. Girls should remember never to insert April Showers bags in or tie them to mailboxes; these are prohibited by the US Postal Service.
A week later, girls return to collect the bags filled with personal care items. Girls should only collect from residences where bags are left outside. Girls should not knock on doors.
