North Coast Area - Where is the Greater Bay Area?

Service is an important part of the Girl Scout philosophy, and all troops and groups are encouraged to seek out opportunities for service. Projects may involve helping other people, animals or our environment. It can be a fantastic opportunity for girls to make new acquaintances and to experience the wonderful world of giving.

Make the holidays brighter for less advantaged children throughout Sonoma County. This is the 18th year that this service project has made hundreds of children’s’ holidays just a little bit happier (approximately 500 per year).

Troops create gift bags filled with toys, necessities and treats for children of all ages. Each bag should include age-appropriate toys, books, simple clothing items, toiletries, candies, and other items you think would be appreciated. All items must be new and unwrapped (toys in the $5-10.00 range). Special needs: bags for children under four, bags for boys and for teens. Stuffed animals are always great additions!

Girl Scouts of Northern California will assist Sonoma County residents with the disposal of their Christmas trees. Troops earn $7 to $10 per tree they pick up. Customers will request tree pick-up by calling the Eco-Desk hotline. Troops are responsible for their own safety equipment and transportation. Girls should participate directly in the project as a money-earning opportunity, but 1-2 adults per truck are needed. Participating troops must send a representative to the mandatory pre-meeting in November.
