With its new Girl Scout Rewards program, the nation’s leading craft and fabric retailer is offering 15 percent off all eligible purchases for Girl Scouts’ more than 2.6 million members, allowing troops to create, grow, and learn even more, with an additional 2.5 percent of each purchase going back to GSUSA. Through the multi-million-dollar partnership, JOANN will also offer in-kind education, recruitment support, and in-store events across the U.S.
Girl Scouts Heart of the South offers girls the opportunity to develop leadership skills through programming focused on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM); the outdoors; life skills; and entrepreneurship. Through fun, educational activities and special events held at its stores throughout the year, JOANN will also help girls learn new skills and give back to their communities.
