In partnership with the Shanti Fund, a charitable organization that attempts to promote peace, GSSC is proud to sponsor
the Promoting Peace patch program. This new patch program ties into an annual event that commemorates the life of world-renowned peace
advocate Mahatma Gandhi. The event will be held on Saturday, September 27 and September 28 from 10 am - 1 pm at the H. Lee Dennison Building in Hauppauge.
This patch program is open to Girl Scouts of all levels. Girls will earn the Promoting Peace patch. Girls who are Daisies, Brownies
and Juniors are required to complete two of the below requirements. Cadettes and Seniors are required
to complete three of the requirements.
Patch Program Criteria:
