SUPPORT Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania!

ValleyForge-63

Your contributions to Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania not only provide financial assistance to girls but also assist Council in providing affordable programs, recruiting and training qualified leaders and advisors for girls, and helps maintain camp properties. More than this, when you give to Girl Scouts, you are investing in the lives of all the girls GSEP serves. It’s been proven, Girl Scouts works—but we couldn’t do it without concerned supporters like you!
