What is the Girl Scout Disaster Relief Team?
The Girl Scout Disaster Relief Team originated in Oneida County and is made up of about ten 16–18-year-old Girl Scouts. These Scouts use their April break from school to travel to communities that have been devastated by natural disasters and are in need of help cleaning up and rebuilding. They have traveled to places such as Alabama, Florida, and most recently — Jamaica, NY. Although this team originated in Oneida County, girls from any county wishing to participate are welcome! This is a huge commitment for all who participate, but the benefits for all can be so rewarding!
Do you enjoy helping others? Are you interested in pursuing humanitarian efforts? We are looking to expand our current group as well as start another DRT in the Southern Region!
