We Love Our Leaders!

April is National Volunteer Month and today is Girl Scout Leader Appreciation Day. Celebrate your favorite Volunteer in the best way!

The very essence of Girl Scouting depends upon the contributions of volunteers. A heart-felt thank-you goes a long way towards making that person feel appreciated. The gesture doesn’t need to be big and grand — it can be as simple as a thank-you letter.
Let a special Girl Scout volunteer know how much they mean to you.
21 Ways To Say Thanks
  1. Smile and just say thanks!
  2. Share your most special photos, stories and moments on social media for all the world to see.
  3. Send a handmade card, or create a scroll with a thank-you proclamation signed by the whole group.
  4. Give a bouquet of daisies or any other flowers.
  5. Cover your community with signs that say “Thank You, Girl Scout Leaders!

  18. Give a festively wrapped Girl Scout Cookie box stuffed with thank-you notes from girls, families, and others (instead of cookies)!
  19. Send a small token of appreciation and attach a famous quote or proverb. Check out the Girl Scouts of San Gorgonio shop for thank-you tokens.
  20. Who doesn’t love a home-cooked meal? Invite your Leader over for an appreciation dinner and toast to them!
