Girl Scouts Louisiana – Pines to the Gulf is sponsoring a council-wide donation drive just in time for spring cleaning! When you donate your new and gently used items, local Goodwill organizations sell them in stores and use the revenue generated to provide valuable employment training and job placement services for people in your community.
Your donations help someone find a job, strengthen your community, and preserve the planet! This effort will also include an opporunity to earn a complimentary patch, and an essay contest for Girl Scout Juniors (4th and 5th grade)!
A friendly competition will wage between GSLPG's North and South regions to see who can donate the most. Weekly updates can be located on our Facebook Page throughout the month of May, culminating with a virtual celebration on June 1 to announce the final numbers, as well as the winners of the essay contest!
Find more details, including how to get your patch and donation deadlines, at our Girls Scouts & Goodwill page, and download this checklist of Spring Cleaning Guidelines for tips on how to get started and prepare your Goodwill donations!
