April Showers

That’s a wrap! April Showers has come to a close for 2022. Thank you to everyone who supported our Girl Scouts as they worked together to help those in need by collecting personal care items through April Showers. With your help we were able to support hundreds of agencies throughout eastern Missouri!

April Showers History

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. This extraordinary program, launched in 1998, has since met a need unknown to many community leaders and citizens.

Over the last 24 years, our eastern Missouri Girl Scouts have collected more than 25 million personal care items. Did you know that families and individuals in need cannot purchase personal care items with the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)? More than 900,000 people a year in Missouri live below the federal poverty line. The items collected through April Showers are distributed to hundreds of agencies throughout eastern Missouri to support those in need in our communities.
