Eight Girl Scout councils on the East coast bore the brunt of Hurricane Sandy, four councils in New Jersey and four in New York. Many GSUSA staff and operations at headquarters, also, were affected by the storm.
To ensure that the councils are getting the kind of support that they need, GSUSA has lifted fundraising restrictions to enable girls to raise money for Girl Scouting recovery efforts in the eight councils.
We encourage you to consider lending your support to the storm victims. You may give to Girl Scouting for recovery that will assist the eight affected Girl Scout councils and headquarters in New York. Funds will
be directed to councils once they have assessed their specific needs. To give, go to donate.girlscouts.org/hurricanerecovery
where you will find links to the online giving sites for all eight individual councils, as well as the giving form for the Hurricane Sandy Recovery Fund that will be distributed to hurricane victims by GSUSA.
Or, you may donate to storm victims via the American Red Cross at this site: www.RedCross.org/HurricaneSandy
