Leading your Girl Scout troop just got easier.

Community Service for Girl Scouts

Girls from Junior troop 3738 collecting school supplies for the local Stuff the Bus drive.

Food drives have long been a favorite community service for Girl Scouts. You can also collect shoes, clothing, books and any other thing members of your community can use. Can you make these ideas sustainable? Making a drive sustainable is a great idea for a bronze, silver or even a gold award. Can you get a permanent drop location set up and get the word out to your community? Can you get volunteers to help man the drop spot?

What else can Girl Scouts do for community service? Just about anything! Take a look at some of the ideas here. If you’ve had great Thinking Day experience, let other leaders know about it with photos on our facebook page or even write a blog and get $40 for your troop to spend at MakingFriends.com

Fun Fact: Girls who were volunteers have a better chance of finding a job than non-volunteers.
