Uniforms in Action
Every year, Girl Scouts of West Central Florida partners with local organizations to roll out a council-wide cause that all girls can rally around. Because there is nothing more nostalgic and inspiring than to see a Girl Scout in uniform serving her community and living courageously, this year's council-wide cause is Uniforms in Action.
This year we're combating hunger by collecting non-perishable food items for Feeding Tampa Bay.
Help provide food security for children and families in need by supporting Feeding Tampa Bay and its affiliates. Simply wear your uniform when collecting non-perishable, non-expired food items and donate them at any designated location between now and May 31, 2021.
Be sure to label your donations with your troop number and/or name along with “GSWCF” to ensure you get credit when it is weighed and counted. You can find a list of supporting locations here.
