St Louis area girl scouts set a new Guinness World Record for collecting more than 1.4 million personal care items last year. 

The scouts teamed with 30 Walmart stores in the first ever “Showering the Community” event last year and is part of their April Showers program.

Donna Martin with the Eastern District of the Greater St. Louis area Girl Scouts says they're doing the same this year at area Walmart's on April 12th-14th. Martin says, ""We had nearly 18,000 girls and 14,000adult volunteers working on this last year and we hope to exceed that this year. Not because it's a record but because we fulfill a need in our community."

The Girls Scout's partner, Operation Food Search helped give out the goods to individuals and families in need.  CEO Sonny Schaefer tells KTRS' Vicki Pimentel, "So many are going to food pantries these days who never in their life thought they'd need to do that."

If you'd like to donate to this year's campaign, you  have until April 20 to fill the bags with items printed on the outside. 

You can also buy pre-packaged bags from Schnuck’s and Dierberg’s stores. Drop off boxes are provided at the stores.

Those who are unable to participate or who forget to donate during the week of the event may drop off items at any Dierberg’s market from April 20 to May 4.

You may also call 1.800.727.4475, ext. 4601 to arrange pickups.
