Volunteer Invite-a-Friend promotion is back, Nov. 15-Dec. 15!

Volunteers: when you help Girl Scouts grow by inviting a friend to become a new Daisy, Brownie, or Junior troop leader, everyone wins! There's a gift for you, a gift for your friend, and the gift of Girl Scouting for a whole new group of girls. Watch for information coming soon via email, or learn more now.

Support Girl Scouts while you shop
From November 7-12, Children's World in Sarasota will donate 20% of your purchase price when you mention "Girl Scouts" at checkout. Why not stop by after the council's ACTION Rally on November 12? You will also receive a coupon good for 10% off your next purchase at the GSGCF Shop (valid through Dec. 3, restrictions apply). Win-win!
