Join us for a weeklong celebration of International Day of the Girl
by giving back to our community. The Girl Scout motto, Do a Good Turn
Daily, will have even more meaning this week as our Girl Scouts make a
difference in our communities by participating in community service
projects throughout the council.
From preparing boxes at the Houston Food Bank to volunteering with
other service agencies, our girls and adults will make a HUGE impact
in the Greater Houston area and surrounding counties.
International Day of the Girl is an annual and internationally
recognized observance on Oct. 11 that celebrates girls and amplifies
their voices. As the largest girl‐led organization, Girl Scouts
supports girls on their path to making a difference in the community
While girls can participate in scheduled council-sponsored community
service activities, Girl Scout Communities and troops can also host
individual service projects to impact their surrounding community.
This will allow girls to make meaningful change in their
neighborhoods, faith communities, and schools.
Join us in celebrating this day and participate in one or more of
the activities below during Oct. 7-14.
Do a Good Turn Daily!
