We express our deepest concern for the flood victims and their families in southeast Missouri. As many of you know, we have numerous sister Girl Scouts in the affected area. We’ve had several calls asking how to help. For disasters in their early stage, it is best to offer donations instead of “packages.” Support can be provided by giving to one of the following locations in the local area:
American Red Cross – SE Missouri Chapter in Cape Girardeau www.semoredcross.org or 888-335-9471
Salvation Army – 573-335-7000
Southeast Missouri Food Bank – www.semofoodbank.org or 573-651-0400
Disaster Relief Fund – PO Box 53, Morehouse, MO 63868
Once the immediate disaster is over, you can continue to offer support through safe community service projects such as helping with clean up, clothing drives, or personal care item collections.
