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! Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida provides opportunities for everyone to come together year-round to participate in council-wide community service projects.

Earth Defenders  

October 1 - 31, 2022

22 ED Large HH 655x360

Thank you to everyone who participated this year! During October 2022 we had 681 participants from 71 different troops participate from Broward, Palm Beach, Martin and St Lucie counties. Projects ranged from beach cleanups to recycling to removing invasive plants to protecting wildlife like pollinators and dolphins. Check out photos on our Flickr page!

We asked Girl Scouts from across our council to become planetary superheros by choosing an environmental issue they are passionate about to support during their project. We loved seeing your creativity shine as you helped protect the planet. Projects ranged from recycling efforts to hosting clean ups to planting native plants and/or removing harmful, invasive plants - the possibilities were endless!

There is nothing Girl Scouts cannot do when they put their mind to it!

In the past, troops have teamed up with other organizations to complete their projects including the Loggerhead Marinelife Center, the River Center, and Hugh Taylor Birch State Park. Other connections have been made with organizations like Terracycle, which is a company that provides a recycling service for a variety of different products like crayons, ink cartridges, and juice pouches.

Feeding Florida Together

April 1 - 30, 2023

2023 FFT FB 1200x628

Every spring, Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida work together to organize food drives and feed our communities as part of our council-wide community service project. We ask that troops or families gather together to start their food drive during the month of April. You can donate to any organization you would like and we have some suggested recipient sites below.

NEW this year: Girl Scouts can choose to donate their time instead of donating goods. A minimum of 3 hours (or one volunteer shift) must be completed at an organization battling hunger in our community in order to qualify for the free patch.  

In order to receive the FREE Feeding Florida Together 2023 patch, your troop must complete the online donation form by May 7, 2023. The first 1500 GSSEF Girl Scout participants will receive a patch.
