Girl Scouts GIVE BACK

Our Council-Wide Collection Drive

One Girl Scout makes a difference. Girl Scouts TOGETHER change the world. Each year, Girl Scouts of all program age levels work together with their families, friends, and neighbors to collect critical items for service organizations across our council. Girl Scouts love to give back and help others, and what better time to give back to the community than during our founder, Juliette Gordon Low’s birthday! Girls can help continue Juliette’s tradition of giving back to the community throughout the month of October by collecting items for one of the organizations below or another organization of your choice.


Step #1: Pick the partner organization for which you want to collect items.

Drop off for these three organizations will be on November 18 from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon in the parking lot of our council office in Overland Park.
