Hurricane Harvey Recovery Efforts—Important Update from GSUSA

Hurricane Harvey Recovery Efforts—Important Update from GSUSA

Hurricane Harvey was an unprecedented storm that, due to the long stretch of time it lingered over Texas and Louisiana, led to massive flooding and devastation in many communities. Unfortunately, Harvey negatively affected many of our girls and their families, as well as several council colleagues and their loved ones.

Many of you have asked how you can contribute to the recovery efforts for our sister Girl Scouts. We have learned when girls have experienced natural disasters like these and are surrounded by recovery efforts, participating in Girl Scouts can be one way to help them, and their families, feel some sense of normalcy.

That’s why GSUSA, with the strong support of our National Board, is lifting fundraising restrictions to enable girls to raise money for Girl Scouting recovery efforts at the four impacted councils: Girl Scouts of San Jacinto, Girl Scouts of Greater South Texas, Girl Scouts of Central Texas, and Girl Scouts of Louisiana–Pines to the Gulf.

Fundraising efforts will be undertaken with the sole intention of providing membership scholarships to impacted girls. Such scholarships are typically defined as dues, uniforms, credentials (e.g., insignia worn on uniforms), and Girl Scout materials. To contribute to this effort, please go to www.girlscouts.org/hurricaneharvey or text HurricaneHarvey to 41444. You can give to the fund for all four councils, which GSUSA will distribute based on their need, as defined by impacted membership, or you can choose a specific council.

Furthermore, the impacted councils remain so grateful for the outpouring of support. However, please note that these councils continue to ask for time to assess and focus on their specific needs and to get back up and running during this critical time. Although material donations and troop offers of assistance have been greatly appreciated, as you can imagine, the councils are not currently in a position to process and organize them.

Stay tuned for more information from GSUSA and councils on how Girl Scouts can support other Girl Scouts during this time, for example by teaming up on projects that troops in these areas are carrying out to support recovery efforts in their communities. GSUSA will be sending out an Action Guide on Disaster Relief early next week.

And sadly, while we are working to support our members and their families whom Harvey has negatively impacted, we are also monitoring Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Jose behind it for possible impact on our members.

It’s been an incredibly challenging time for many people in the affected areas, and Girl Scouts have displayed tremendous courage, confidence, and character during such a trying time. It’s been heartening to see so many in our Movement come together to help the affected communities in their time of need.
