THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING GIRL SCOUTS!
Over the summer, girls in our Girl Scout Connect program learned they can make a difference in their communities. These girls recognized their town had a large population of stray animals. They raised awareness to the adults and community members, hosted events to spay, neuter, and vaccinate pets and volunteered at the animal shelter. This is just one example of these girls learning what they are capable of through Girl Scouting.
The Girl Scouts Connect program brings the traditional Girl Scout experience to 5,000 girls who would not normally be able to experience Girl Scouting, may it be due to financial struggles, proximity to activities, or family lifestyles.
Girl Scouting provides all Girl Scouts with an opportunity to confidently become whatever she wants to be. At Girl Scouts of Central California South, we guide her, mentor her and inspire her. When girls succeed, so does society. You can help us give every one of our local girls the opportunity to discover fun, friendship, and the power of girls working together. Please donate today and help us help our girls discover who they are and what they can become, connect with the people around them, and take action in our local communities.
Give the gift of a Girl Scout membership, or more…
Your gift of $20 pays for one girl’s membership for an entire year. Through this she will meet new friends and have fun while building leadership skills that last a lifetime.
Your gift of $25 pays for one girl’s uniform and program supplies where she will get a vest or sash to display her hard-earned badges, and receive a workbook to grow and learn.
Your gift of $50 will pay for one girl’s outing or adventure activity. With these outings, she will learn new skills, connect with other Girl Scouts, as well as her community, and gain self confidence.
Your gift of $100 pays for four girls to enjoy a day at camp where they all will enjoy an experience that will last her for a lifetime, while learning outdoor skills and teamwork.
