Girl Scouts Continue Response to Tornadoes

In St. Louis, MO, KMOV TV 4 reports that local Girl Scouts have been collecting supplies for schools heavily damaged by the tornadoes in Alabama. Today, all donations are being transported to Tuscaloosa, Alabama, where the supplies will be distributed among the schools affected. On April 27th and 28th, a string of tornadoes tore through several southern states, killing roughly 300 people and decimating entire neighborhoods.
You can donate money to the American Red Cross in several different ways. You can always do it through the Red Cross website. You can also text "REDCROSS" to the phone number 90999. After you send the text, $10 will be donated to the Red Cross, and the charge will appear on your next phone bill. You can also donate by phone or by mail. Here is a partial list of organizations that are helping with the disaster.

Our thoughts go out to everyone affected by this disaster. Do you have any examples of Girl Scouts helping communities following the tornadoes?
