Community Cleanup for Water Quality

Posted by

2013 Community Cleanup PatchJoin your sister Girl Scouts for the 2013 Community Cleanup for Water Quality. With the generous support from 3M and consultation from expert partners such as the Freshwater Society and Friends of the Minnesota Valleys, River Valleys will be continuing the success of last year’s Centennial Day of Service.

Troops are invited to organize cleanups in their communities between October 15 and November 15. Learn more and register your cleanup event here.

  1. Michelle says:

    Will the council be able to provide bags like last year?

  2. Girl Scouts River Valleys says:

    Hi Michelle- Thanks for the question. Last year’s bags were a gift for the Centennial and will not be supplied this year by the council.

    do the girls get a badge for this?

  4. Sue says:

    Can the girls earn the badge if we organize it at the troop level, and not organize this at a service unit level?

  5. Girl Scouts River Valleys says:

    All girls can earn a Community Cleanup Patch, which will be sent along with door hangers when they register their cleanup at the Freshwater site. Cleanups do not have to be organized at the service unit level. More information can be found on the Community Cleanup page.

    The registration address did not work for me. I was able to get there through another way though. It sent me to a “freshwater quality” site though not a girl scout site.

  7. Christy Steman says:

    I was wondering how we can get an additional 3 patches? I had three new girls join and would hate to see them not get one for their hard work. Thanks!

  8. Girl Scouts River Valleys says:

    Hi Christy- Please email troop.support@girlscoutsrv.org with the number of additional patches you need, along with your name, troop number and address where they should be sent.

  9. Dustin Tollefsrud says:

    Is this being offered for Fall of 2014? Please let us know ASAP!

  10. Girl Scouts River Valleys says:

    Hi Dustin, We are not running the Community Cleanup for Water Quality program this year, but there are some other great opportunities you might be interested in. You can check out Feeding the Need and GoodStuff Donations at http://www.girlscoutsrv.org/girls-families/serving-the-community/.
