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.
The success of this Council-wide program is only possible thanks to our Girl Scouts, their families, neighbors, adult volunteers and of course, our community partners who generously donate their time and resources to this important initiative.
Together, we help our G.I.R.L.s (Go-getters, Innovators, Risk-takers, Leaders) TM make the world a better place!
|April 17-19||Bag Distribution
The first weekend, girls, their leaders and families distribute bags door-to-door throughout the Council’s jurisdiction.
|April 18||Showering the Community
Girl Scouts across eastern Missouri will hold the annual “Showering the Community” event. Before or after your troop delivers their assigned bags, Girl Scouts will visit a participating Schnucks, Walmart or other rural store in our jurisdiction to encourage donations and collect items for individuals and families in need.
|April 25||Bag collection
The second Saturday, girls return and collect bags filled with personal care items. These items are counted and donated to local pantries and shelters.
A special thanks to:
|In partnership with Operation Food Search, Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri has collected and distributed more than 23 million personal care items to local families and individuals in need.|
