Letter to the Editor: Thank you to our volunteers!

To the Editor:
In the spirit of the holiday, I would like to say thank you! Thank you to our 18,000 adult members of Girl Scouting who volunteered their time, resources, and giving hearts to changing the lives of 44,000 Girl Scouts across Connecticut. This dedication, hard work, and support is needed now more than ever, as we work together to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
For more than 100 years, Girl Scouts, with the help of a valuable volunteer force, has been providing girls with a safe environment to discover about themselves and their values, connect with others to develop healthy relationships, and take action in their communities to make the world a better place. While our cookies, camps, and sing-a-longs are the most recognizable part of the Girl Scouting experience, we continue to evolve to meet the needs of today’s girls. We do this through a variety of exciting, relevant programming including robotics, science and technology, anti-bullying conferences, helping girls build a healthy self-esteem and lead a healthy lifestyle and – most importantly – we help girls realize their full leadership potential. This is something the world desperately needs in 2014!
Girl Scouts across Connecticut would not have experienced this wonderful slate of programming without the support and dedication of our volunteers, staff, and most importantly, you! Thank you once again for making that commitment to our girls. I would like to wish everyone a safe, healthy holiday season and happy New Year.
Girl Scouts of Connecticut, CEO
