On April 18, 2015, between 10 am and 4 pm Girl Scouts will be Showering the Community at local Walmart stores in our jurisdiction. Girls are encouraged to wear rain boots, rain coats and carry umbrellas if available, to help promote.
As customers enter, girls hand them raindrop-shaped lists of needed items, encouraging shoppers to buy personal care items to donate. As people exit, they hand the donated items to the girls or they may contribute cash. Girls will use this money to purchase additional items which are then distributed to local pantries to help those in need.
Individuals, who did not receive a bag or are unavailable to donate during the Showering the Community program can drop off personal care items in the barrels located at their nearest Dierbergs Markets from April 25 – May 9, 2015. They can also call 314.400.4601 or 1.800.727.4475, ext. 4601, to arrange a pickup.
