Adopt A Family
Thank you to all the Troops and families who donated non-perishable grocery food items and gifts for the children.

There are a few remaining children on our list, so let us know if you would like to provide them with a gift.
Plus we would appreciate $20 grocery gift cards and $10 cash/Costco cash (donations towards feeding the children/families at the event).
We do have enough grocery food items. Thank You.

Service Unit Communications
In order to improve communication out to everyone, we will be adding email addresses to a Crossroads Service Unit Google Group.

Communications currently only reaches about 30% of our members, since these are sometimes seen as spam or automatically placed into non-primary inbox folders.

If you do not have a Gmail address, you may associate your existing email address with a Google account.

Quick Steps to Setup a Google Account with a non-Gmail Email
Step 1: Log out of any Gmail account(s) you’re currently logged in to, then open
Step 2: Click the Create Account link below the gray “sign in with your Google Account” box.
Step 3: Below the “Choose your username” field, click "I prefer to use my current email address" link.
Step 4: Enter your non-Gmail email address you would like to register with Google.
Step 5: Finish filling out the new account form and accept Google’s Privacy Policy and Terms.
Step 6: Confirm your new account with the email address you provided.

Please let us know if you have trouble or questions.
Crossroads Facebook Closed Group
We have a "closed group" on our Facebook Page.  This for adults who are registered Girl Scouts and are screened and cleared.  Because this is a closed group we can share more specific information about service unit events and happenings within Girl Scouts. 

If you would like to be a member of the closed group, use the link to our Facebook Home Page (click here), once there click "More" then "Groups".  From there you can request to join the group.  Once an administrator has verified your membership and volunteer clearance you will be added.

If you notice you have not been approved, be sure to check your Facebook messages.  Sometimes we need to email and follow-up with questions, as our Girl Scout and Facebook names may be different.
