Operation: Help a Sister Out Blanket Drive!
As you all have seen on the news and in the papers, on Facebook and Twitter- the East Coast has been devastated by Super Storm Sandy and along with
it, thousands of our Girl Scouts Sisters.
Today, our National Headquarters was able to regain power and so we are starting to piece together the status of our Sisters out East.
If you are eager to help now, we are asking that each troop please donate at least one new blanket to be dropped off at the Girl Scouts Resource Center nearest you. We will be collecting the blankets and shipping them directly to Girl Scout Councils who can distribute them to families in need. Letters or happy notes from girls to their sister Scouts are also welcome to accompany blanket donations!
Why blankets? We believe blankets are the most sustainable item we can provide. They will keep families warm now and into the future.
We will also be putting together a list of the most needed items from Girls Scout Councils and families and will post updates as information becomes available.
All girls participating in the relief efforts will receive a Girl Scouts Emergency Relief Patch.
Join Operation: Help a Sister Out and help your sister Scouts!
