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.

Earth Defenders

October 1 - 31, 2018

Calling all Earth Defenders! We need your help this October for our council-wide fall service project to make the world a better - and greener - place!

What you do is totally up to you.  Just be sure your service project is focused on helping the Earth. Decide as a troop (or on your own!) what it is that you care about the most, and then get to work! Do you want to improve water quality? Save electricity to be more energy efficient? Eliminate single-use plastics from our community? Help protect animal habitats? Your project can focus on these or any number of environmental issues to defend Earth! 

Once you decide what it is you want to do, you can use our list of resources or do your own research to determine how you can make the biggest impact for Earth right here in our community.

Earth Defenders will need to register here and keep track of their work in order to submit an online report that will be emailed to all registrants at the end of the project (October 31). Only Girl Scouts who register AND submit an online report will be mailed a fun patch!

We have only one Earth and it’s up to ALL of us to defend it. Be an Earth Defender this October and make a difference the Girl Scout way!

Have questions? Contact Gracyn Boss at gboss@gssef.org or 561-815-1807.

Drive the Food patch

Drive the Food

#DrivenByGirls

April 28 - May 31, 2018

Thank you to everyone who participated in Drive the Food! Girl Scouts picked up just over 28,000 boxes of food from the 2 pick-up locations with roughly 2000 girls participating in total. Food was distributed to schools, afterschool programs, senior centers, churches and food banks throughout our 6 county area. 

For our 2018 Council-wide community service project, GSSEF was presented with a unique opportunity to partner with Living Hungry, a local nonprofit whose initiative addresses food insecurity in our communities! Instead of gathering the food ourselves, Living Hungry provided boxes of nonperishable food and snacks for our troops to help distribute to communities in need – kind of like a reverse food drive.
