TULSA -

The Girl Scouts of Eastern Oklahoma just launched a fundraiser to help families who may be struggling to pay membership dues because of the COVID-19 economic impact.

The virtual fundraiser is called "Man Enough to be a Girl Scout," and the goal is to raise $15,000.

Three Tulsa men are pledging to do their best to raise $5,000 each.

That list includes attorney Gentner Drummond, former TU and NFL football player Jerry Ostroski, and the CEO of QuikTrip, Chet Cadieux.

Girl Scouts of Eastern Oklahoma serves about 10,000 girls across 30 counties.

Leaders say they've really adapted during the pandemic and are still offering a lot of programs for the girls right now, even though they aren't meeting in-person.

That includes virtual campfire chats, a patch program that encourages getting outside and exploring nature, and a virtual day camp, just to name a few.

You can text "ManEnoughGSEOK" to 71777 or go online to make a donation.

The money raised will go toward annual membership dues, which are $25 per Girl Scout.
