Ways to Help Girl Scouts Affected by Hurricane Harvey

When disasters strike, Girl Scouts are among the first to respond, taking action to make the world a better place. For those who have inquired about doing something to help, there are many ways to get involved.

Initial communication with members and staff have reported everything from loss of homes and vehicles to inability to work, damaged Girl Scout properties and mental health needs for girls beginning to cope with the devastation.

Girl Scouts San Jacinto Council needs your help to ensure girls have access to Girl Scouts. We are committed to providing financial and programmatic support to provide members with what they need, when they need it. Your gifts will support the following:

  • Replacing uniforms, books, and curriculum materials lost in storms
  • Offering scholarships (membership, troop dues, program / camp fees, etc.) to girls and volunteers that have been impacted and need extra financial support during this time
  • Ensuring Girl Scouts can continue their Girl Scout experience uninterrupted
  • Supporting girls through the healing process, relieving anxiety and inspiring confidence in the future with specific program opportunities.

Whether families lost homes or children have seen devastation around their community, we recognize that each child was affected differently.

How to request assistance:

If you are a member in GSSJC and your Girl Scout or a member of your troop needs financial assistance for her membership or Girl Scout materials, like her sash or vest, please select this option during the online renewal process or complete the special financial assistance form.

As is the Girl Scout way, we will continue to stand by all girls and we appreciate your support during this time. Should you have any questions, please contact 713-292-0300.
