Girl Scouts in Action

Service has always been a large part of Girl Scouting. Girl Scout troops continually help their communities with meaningful projects that promote civic responsibility and demonstrate how her efforts can impact her community. Through community service, girls can see that their involvement has the power to make the world a better place.

This page is dedicated to troops and girls that are taking action in their communities. Whether it is a community service project, event or work on their Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards. Please fill out the information below.

Pullman Junior Girl Scout Troop 3709 under the leadership of Jen Marbut presented Neill Public Library's Children's Librarian Kathleen Ahern with a check for $2,000.  The monies will help support the Youth Services Summer Reading Program in 2014.  All members of Troop 3709 are avid readers and library users.  They selected the library's summer reading program for their targeted donation and worked all year to make this generous donation possible. (June 2013)

GSEWNI Junior Troop#3664 from the South Hill donated 31 swimsuits to the Spokane Parks Foundation's "Make A Splash in a Kid's Life" project at A.M. Cannon Pool. Among other things, the project provides pool passes and swimsuits to kids who could not otherwise afford to use public pools. These Girl Scouts named their Take Action project "The Great Swimsuit Challenge 2013." The girls organized money earning opportunities, purchased the NEW swimsuits and presented them at a news conference at the pool in June 2013.

Troops 2345 and 2213 from SU 423 from Moscow, Idaho worked in the University of Idaho Arboretum on a “Green It & Clean It” project with Arboretum Associates. The troops planted more than 200 new groundcover plants on a steep slope north of the lilacs. Hopefully, this will eliminate another dangerous spot to mow, while at the same time demonstrating some groundcovers that will work in the Palouse.
