Girl Scouts Can Do!

Girl Scouts Can Do! is a food drive powered by the Girl Scouts of Orange County for the Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County. This year we will be collecting food at Girl Scout program centers and locations throughout Orange County!

How to Participate:

  1. Participate in door-to-door collections – Starting now, wear your Girl Scout uniform and go door to door with a buddy asking for nonperishable food donations in your area. Then, bring the donated items to the collection site in your area before 2:00 p.m. on November 23rd. (see link in calendar for a list of collection sites)
  2. Organize a local mini-drive – Customizable fliers to advertise your collection event!  Meet with your school or a local business/organization to get approval to leave a collection box at their location. Decorate the box to grab attention and pick up food as it fills up! Bring your filled box to the drop-off location in your area before 2:00 p.m. on November 23rd.
