Community Service Partners

Community Service Partners

Girl Scouts can help Douglass Community Services by holding drives, helping in the pantry and assisting with distribution. All levels are welcome to hold a food or personal care item drive at any time throughout the year. Toy drives are needed during the months of October and November. In the month of December, girls can assist with Toys for Tots distribution. Senior and Ambassador girls are invited to help out in the food pantry at anytime during the year. For more information on volunteering with the pantry please reach out using the contact infromation below.

We have a variety of service opportunities both during the week and on Saturdays from 9am-5pm. Volunteers most often help with sorting or stocking donations in our store and market, sanitizing classrooms, outdoor beautification and pricing items for our holiday market in December. 

Special opportunities include our service to-go kits (group purchases supplies for a specific kit, assembles at their own location and then delivers to LifeWise), Freedom School (summer programming), back to school event (mid-August), and holiday market (beginning of December). Some special events require additional chaperones. 

Chaperone policy: Children 6-12 must be accompanied by an adult 21 or older on a 4 to 1 ratio. 

Teens 13-17 must be accompanied by an adult 21 years or older on a 7 to 1 ratio.
