Update (August 11, 2011): The response to help those affected in our area due to recent natural disasters has been overwhelming! The level of generosity we’ve seen from people who want to help has been inspiring, and has greatly helped those affected.
If you would still like to contribute, as need still exists, we ask that you visit http://www.joplinmo.org to see if there are agencies still accepting items/donations or consider contributing to our GSMH Relief Fund, rather than sending items directly to our service centers.
Again, thank you for your help!
Girl Scouts of the Missouri Heartland continues to send its thoughts and prayers to those who have suffered from recent natural disasters across our area. We are proud of our Girl Scout members, sisters, and friends who have reached out to each other in this time of great need.
To assist Girl Scout members who are struggling in the wake of flooding in eastern and southern Missouri and tornadoes in western and central Missouri, we have established a special Disaster Relief Fund. 100% of donations earmarked for this fund will be used to provide:
- Replacement uniforms, books, patches, and supplies for girls and adults
- 2011-2012 membership fees for disaster-area members
- Summer camp and program event financial assistance for girls
- Training fee financial assistance for adults
Contributions to this fund may be mailed to the Girl Scouts of the Missouri Heartland Administrative Service Center at: Girl Scouts of the Missouri Heartland, 210 S. Ingram Mill Road, Springfield, MO 65802. Please write “Disaster Relief Fund” in the memo section of your check.
