Sometimes just the gift of generosity is the only thing that will suffice. Whether it’s in your own name or on behalf of someone else, a donation is always an incredible gift for the holidays. The Opportunity Fund gives more girls the opportunity to reach their potential with Girl Scouts. The Camp Improvement fund helps bring more camp experiences to our Girl Scout campers! Or join GSNorCal in donating to One Warm Coat, keeping folks warm this holiday season. 

Psst—Got someone hard to shop for? Consider our newly released Gift Cards! Available to load with any amount you see fit, these are great for girls and leaders alike. 

What to do next: 

  • Check out our holiday collection for great outdoor items, apparel, ornaments, plush, and more! Keep in mind all of our stores and offices will be closed December 21, 2019–December 28, 2019 & January 1, 2020 for the winter holidays (but don’t worry—our online shop will be open 24/7). 
  • Join us at our Craft & Cocoa events throughout the council and shop in peace while your creative crafters make ornaments and enjoys hot chocolate with cookies. All participants will also get a one-of-a-kind fun patch to commemorate the experience along with two exclusive coupons! Brought to you for just $2 per person, this stress-free afternoon will keep even the most rambunctious troops entertained. Our Alameda and San Jose locations have the added bonus of a staff-sponsored craft boutique which will provide unique and heartfelt gifts right to you. 
  • Consider giving the gift of lifetime membership. When someone receives lifetime membership in Girl Scouts for the holidays, they get a one-of-a-kind gift that drives meaningful change today and tomorrrow. Not to mention, the gift-givers will receive a complimentary rose-gold ceramic mug (promotion ends December 31, 2019). Once a Girl Scout, always a Girl Scout.

Erik Moulton—Erik is an amazing human being that literally everyone loves. He was born a baby, grew up as a child and eventually became an adult. As Inventory Manager with Girl Scouts of Northern California, he brings in fun, engaging merchandise suited for every girl. That doesn’t go to his head though; he puts his pants on one leg at a time (mostly because both at the same time would be childish). When he isn’t bringing operational excellence to the council, he’s bringing it home to his wife and three kids with a notorious lack of chill. Come say “Hi!” next time you’re in the shop!
