The Anderson House is a busy place! With more than 20 Girl Scout troops meeting here, rarely does a day go by when the house is not filled with busy voices, laughter, learning, and projects.
In between the many activities, we also host and participate in fund-raising events, so we can help to support the girls’ activities.
The Girl Scouts are world-famous for their cookie sales! Most people also know that those cookies are not available year-round, but instead happen in the first winter months of the year. When we have details about how the Anderson House supports those cookie drives, we’ll post them here. (Nothing at the moment.)
Do you have any clothes or footwear that are worn out, or someone’s grown out of them, or you just don’t need anymore? You’ve come to the right place! We turn those clothes into funds to support our girls!
A couple of times a year we have a clothing drive, where we gather from the community lots and lots of bags filled with clothes and shoes. Then we work with organizations like Savers, where they accept those items. The money they pay all goes toward supporting the Anderson House and the girls.
Even though we do the clothing drive roughly twice a year, we accept clothes and shoes year-round! All we ask is that the items are clean, and you put them in kitchen-size (13-gallon) plastic bags. (Bags larger than this tend to tear from the weight.) If you are cleaning out your attic or closet and would like to arrange to drop those items off at the Anderson House any time during the year, please contact us here so we can arrange a time to meet you there. Thanks!
When we have specifics about the next clothing drive, you’ll be able to find them here. (Nothing at the moment.)
Throughout the year we’re on the lookout for vendors who make especially clever and beautiful crafts. Then from time to time, we gather them all together at the Anderson House for a craft fair. These are popular events!
Our 2022 Fall Fair will be Saturday, November 19 from 9:00-1:00. We’ll have all the details soon!
