Modesto Girl Scout Office and Shop Move to New Location in Salida | Community
MODESTO, Calif. 8/27/2012 – Over the past three years Girl Scouts Heart of Central California (GSHCC) has expanded its services and added more staff to fill the increasing needs in Modesto. In order to continue cost-efficient operations, the Modesto Office and Girl Scout Shop have moved to a new building at 5172 Kiernan Court, Suite D in Salida—just in time for the 2012-2013 Girl Scout year.
The new space is at a more accessible location near Highway 99 and also accommodates a larger Girl Scout Shop with extended hours effective Sept. 1. Girl Scouts and troop leaders can purchase books, badges, uniforms and other Girl Scout gear at the shop.
Beginning Sept. 1, the new Girl Scout Shop hours are Tuesday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The shop is closed on Sunday and Monday.
Modesto Office hours remain Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
In Modesto, nearly 3,000 girls gain courage, confidence and character through Girl Scouting. The new space allows GSHCC to continue to offer high quality Girl Scout programs to its members in Modesto and the surrounding areas.
The 2012-2013 Girl Scout year begins Oct. 1. Girl Scouts have fun making friends and gaining leadership skills through hands-on activities and innovative field trips. All girls in kindergarten through grade 12 are encouraged to join. Each troop needs adult volunteers to get started.
To find out how to register a girl or join as a volunteer in the Modesto area, call 209-545-3620, or visit girlscoutshcc.org/join.asp to see dates and locations of upcoming Girl Scout information events.
