April is Volunteer Appreciation Month, and while a month is hardly
long enough to show our gratitude for all that you do, we want to show
you that we see, recognize, and appreciate you. Volunteers are the
heart and soul of Girl Scouts. We could not offer the programs we do
without our wonderful volunteers. Thank you for lending your energy,
talent, and time to the girls.
Please join us for a
celebration all month long in 2022:
Week of April 4th: Take some time for
YOU! Relax with peaceful meditation, do yoga from the comfort of your home, or get up
and dance to some Disney with the whole family (or
just yourself, we don’t judge!). Finish the week off with a fun coloring page featuring our 2022 cookie
mascot: the Koala!
Week of April 11th:
Girls, this week is for you to show your volunteers appreciation!

activity for the girls to do for our volunteers as well!).

moments and arrange them in a slideshow or poster board with the
headline “Because of You…” and present it to your troop leader at
your next meeting!
- Surprise the troop leaders with a party
at your next meeting and take turns sharing what you appreciate most
- Send us your favorite photos of you and your
troop leaders to be included in a slide show played at our Open
