North Face Awards GSSJC Explore Fund Grant

The North Face has awarded the Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council a $6000 grant to go towards new supplies for our backpacking program. With this donation we will be able to buy 18 tents and 41 backpacks--and don't forget all the smiles now that more supplies means more girls will be able to enjoy the great outdoors. 

The North Face selected a total of 47 organizations focusing on projects that use outdoor exploration as the catalyst for positive, personal or societal change, provide experiences that nurture an appreciation of the outdoors or encourage participants to try new outdoor activities that allow outdoor exploration and adventure. GSSJC was voted one of the top grantees for 2015 because of our mission to help build girls of courage, confidence and character.
