Wish List for the Girl Scout Council of Eastern South Carolina

The Girl Scouts of Eastern South Carolina owns two camp facilities, two service centers and rents five satellite offices in order to provide many opportunities to our girls and volunteers. As the economy weakens, the needs increase for many worthy organizations. Girl Scouts of Eastern South Carolina strives to find alternative ways of funding.

We would like to identify parents, friends and relatives who may have connections for donations of services, materials, etc. With contributions from over 8800 members and their contacts we can make our funds go a lot further. If you have contacts at work or through your community involvement that could possibly provide assistance, please contact the fund development department at 843-669-5174 or 843-552-9910. Below is a list of some of the things we are looking for throughout the council.
