Volunteer Appreciation Week

VOlunteer Appreciation photoHappy Girl Scout Volunteer Appreciation week!

We couldn’t support Girl Scouting here in New Hampshire and Vermont without the hard work, time, and talent of our dedicated volunteers. So this week, we’re celebrating you. Whether you’re a troop leader, a community volunteer, a board member, or a cookie mom/dad: thank you!

Not a volunteer and looking for a way to say thanks? Here are some ideas:

  • Pick up something special at Our Store – we’ve got great gift options for any GSGWM Volunteer!
  • Give them a picture of your Scout or the whole troop with a note attached
  • Share a house plant or a new garden plant
  • Bake a yummy treat (don’t forget to check for allergies!)
  • Have your Scout write a note with one of the shareable cards on our website
  • Help the whole troop pick a song to sing or create a thank you skit
  • Take to social media- post one of our cards on Facebook or Twitter during this special week. Don’t forget to tag @girlscoutsgwm and use the hashtag #NVW15!
