At Girl Scouts, we believe in the power of every G.I.R.L. (go-getter, innovator, risk-taker, and leader)™ to change the world. As a new Girl Scout family, we understand there’s a lot to learn and we’re here to support you! Each month, we will guide you through the Girl Scout year with timely topics and tips to help your Girl Scout have the best year ever!

It's volunteer apprecation month!

April is Volunteer Appreciation Month! Thank you to all our volunteers who help the girls of central Ohio grow in courage, confidence and character.

You can show your appreciation for the volunteers in your Girl Scout's life by sending an eCard or giving them a shout out on social media. You can find more ways to show your gratitude in this article.

And we have a special gift for our volunteers! Every volunteer who comes to one of the stores during April will get a free patch!

In addition, any volunteer who makes a purchase during National Volunteer Week April 7-13 will receive a 5 percent discount coupon to be used June 1-7.
