Help Girl Scouts with Your Back-to-School Shopping!

It's that time of year again when we're scouting for the best deals on school supplies and gearing up for Houston back-to-school traffic. As you and your Girl Scout wander the aisles--you, looking for that perfect deal while she's looking for the latest trends--make sure you shop for a cause and send your spendings back to Girl Scouts!

By shopping online at  Amazon, or at Randalls and Kroger a percentage of your expenses will be donated to GSSJC. 

Amazon: You can support Girl Scouts every time you shop on Amazon! GSSJC is now part of the Amazon Smile Program that donates a portion of eligible purchases to a nonprofit organization of the customer’s choice.

Make sure you shop via http://smile.amazon.com/ and search for Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council to link your Amazon account to us. Your charity of choice will be listed at the top of the page while you shop and stored in your account for future purchases.

Randalls: The Randalls Good Neighbor Program donates one percent of customers’ purchases to up to three nonprofit organizations of their choice. Visit the courtesy booth at your local Randalls to fill out the enrollment form and indicate charity #519. Your account will be linked to GSSJC. You only have to sign up once! You can also call 713-292-0231 to request the form from the Council.

Kroger: GSSJC is part of the Kroger Community Rewards program that donates $1 million annually to local nonprofits.

Visit krogercommunityrewards.com to link your Kroger Plus Card to Girl Scouts, and a portion of your purchase will be donated to GSSJC. You only have to sign up once, and you’ll be a supporter of GSSJC for the next year. You can search for Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council by name or by the organizational number 83762.
