Whenever there is a crisis, Girl Scouts are among the first to respond, taking action to make the world a better place. For those who have inquired about doing something to help, you will find information and resources below, including information about a patch program designed to encourage girls to participate in the relief efforts for those impacted by Hurricane Harvey while learning about disaster preparedness.
Girls Scouts are encouraged to take action using GSUSA program resources that demonstrate how the Girl Scout Leadership Experience supports girls as leaders in times of disaster. These resources give tips and examples for engaging girls who want to help.
Hurricane Harvey Patch Program
As a council that serves girls and volunteers in Texas, we have joined with our sister councils in Texas to share this program. View patch and program details here. If your troop participates, please be sure to share your story with us.
Donations are the best way to take immediate action. Donations should be made to established funds benefiting the victims such as:
- American Red Cross - Central & South Texas Region
- Greater Houston Community Foundation: Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund
- Covenant House Texas - shelter for homeless youth
- Corpus Christi Food Bank
- Galveston County Food Bank
- Houston Food Bank
- Victoria County Food Bank
- SPCA of Texas
