Today’s Tips 10.3.22

Hurricane Assistance to Florida 
After Hurricane Ian left destruction in its path last week, many Girl Scouts are asking “how can we help?”

Girl Scouts of West Central Florida has put together a take action list of ways girls and troops can help with relief efforts for our Girl Scout sisters in and around Florida. You can find the list here. Girls who support these efforts will also receive a Hurricane Ian Action Team Patch. 

As we become aware of more resources and ways to help, especially for the families of Girl Scouts of the Gulfcoast where the storm hit the hardest, we will keep you updated. ​
