April Showers, Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri's largest community service program. Girl Scouts, their troop leaders, families and friends help people in need by collecting personal care items. This extraordinary program was launched in 1998.
More than 1.1 million personal care items were collected in 2016 through April Showers and Girl Scouts gave more than 1 million hours of community service in 2015. The success of this Council-wide program is only possible thanks to the dedication, time and effort of Girl Scouts, parents, leaders and volunteers, in addition to the generous support of local community partners and community members who donate.
Together, we help empower girls to inspire and team with others to make the world a better place!
