When Juliette Gordon Low founded Girl Scouts in 1912, she understood that dedicated and dynamic leaders were vital to helping girls develop their full potential. With the support, vision, and commitment of these role models, girls have the opportunity to become leaders in their communities and the world.
A Message from our Board Chair (Published July 29, 2020)
Due to schools being closed, those funds are now being dispersed to serve more girls throughout the Central Valley. All girls will now be able to participate in Girl Scout programming virtually and sign up as a Girl Scout with no cost to them. This allows ALL girls to participate in Girl Scouts, despite their economic status.
The Board of Girls Scouts of Central California South is also working with Council to pivot fundraising efforts. Over the past few months, the Women Inspiring Girls (WIGs) events planned for Kings, Tulare, and Madera Counties have been canceled. While this hurts our fundraising efforts, it also pains us to not be able to celebrate the remarkable women in those communities. Please know that we will return to fundraising events when it’s safe, and we will continue to gather in celebration to honor the incredible women and girls in our communities.The lost revenue from our fundraising events will have a significant impact on our ability to further help our girls during this challenging time. We ask you to please keep Girls Scouts of Central California South in mind when planning any charitable giving. Your support will help our girls in learning and developing skills that will allow them to be future leaders in our community. I do not doubt that if our Girls Scouts were in charge, our world would be a better place.
