Council-Wide Community Service

Council-Wide Community Service

As Girl Scouts, we promise to “help people at all times” and “make the world a better place.” What better way to demonstrate our commitment to Girl Scouting than providing community service! Conducting service projects during Girl Scout Week or on Thinking Day is a great way to give back to our community while expressing enthusiasm for the Girl Scout Movement. Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida Council-wide community service project, Feeding Florida Together, is held during the month of April. A new Council-wide community service project, Cozy Feets and Covered Seats will take place in October 2017. Girls can receive a patch for participating in these service projects; all while learning about her community and feeling good about herself because she helped someone in need.

Cozy Feets and Covered Seats

Cozy Feets and Covered Seats
October 1 - November 15, 2017 

Whether it's wild toe socks, underwear, boxer shorts or itty bitty diapers, Girl Scouts from across our council will unite by taking action to help local families and neighbors in need through their participation in Cozy Feets and Covered Seats. 

What to collect

Service Units, troops and individual girls are asked to collect new socks, underwear and diapers from their families in the Service Unit or troop, or use proceeds from the troop treasury to purchase items on behalf of the troop to donate.

Where to deliver and donate

Deliver items to any location listed below between October 1 and November 15 during their designated hours.  If you wish to donate to an organization off our list, that’s absolutely fine. These are suggestions to get you started!

We can only accept items from the What to collect section above. No other donations will be accepted.

Each participating Girl Scout (girl member) will receive a GSSEF exclusive patch to show our appreciation for your participation. To receive your “Cozy Feets, Covered Seats” patch, you must complete the donation form by November 15 at 11:59 p.m.

Thank you to all who participated in the Feeding Florida Food Drive!

Please continue to visit this page for the latest information on the 2018 Council-wide community service project.

 

Did you know that 1 in 4 children in Florida go to bed hungry and don’t get enough food to live active, healthful lives? As Girl Scouts, we must do our part to decrease these alarming statistics and help feed the hungry in our communities. Local food banks need your help to stock their pantries and prevent hunger even when it is not the holiday season. Join us for our Annual GSSEF Feeding Florida Together Food Drive, and help us collect non-perishable food items. We encourage you to reach out to your local community to help us in our mission to fill the food pantries during this month!  You can place food collection boxes in your local churches, synagogues, schools, daycare centers, small businesses, neighborhoods, troop meeting places, grocery stores, and get your entire community involved! Girls will receive a special Feeding Florida Together Food Drive patch.
