Giving Back to Our Volunteers

It's National Volunteer Week!

Every year Girl Scout volunteers bring girls new experiences and joy they'll remember and benefit from for many years to come. Much of what girls are taught revolves around topics of friendship, courage, confidence, and character, and we are thankful to have so many different characters that emulate this in their service to girls. That's why we've joined with Point Light, the world's largest organization dedicated to volunteer service, to celebrate service together during National Volunteer Week, April 12-18.

This week, thank the Girl Scout volunteer in your life by downloading this cool shareable card. Email it, simply print it, or place it in an envelope wrapped with a bow. With this card, your special volunteer is sure to feel appreciated. Also, don't forget to send us your photos and shout-outs  on the GSSJC Facebook and Twitter during this very special week. Tag @girlscouts and use the hashtag #NVW15.
