From educating communities about food production and selling Treasury Bonds during WWI and the Spanish flu pandemic to planting victory gardens and training in first aid during WWII, Girl Scouts have always stepped up in times of need, and our current COVID-19 crisis is no different. All across our country and our world, Girl Scouts have leapt to the aid of others by engaging in wonderful acts of service and kindness. Now your troop can get involved too!

From Girl Scouts of the USA CEO, Sylvia Acevedo:
Service and civic responsibility are at the heart of Girl Scouts. Ever since our founding by Juliette Gordon Low in 1912, Girl Scouts have lived by our motto—"be prepared." As a Movement, we have supported each other and the girls we serve as they learn what it means to be personally prepared and ready to be of service to their communities during uncertain times.
In our current health crisis, Girl Scouts continue to give back, collaborating virtually and taking action on meaningful community projects that bring joy and comfort to those who need it and making the world a better place.
