Volunteer Appreciation

Volunteers are the only human beings on the face of the earth who reflect the nation’s compassion, unselfish caring, patience and just plain love for one another.
                        Erma Bombeck

Let’s see…let me throw out some numbers here.

In our medium-sized Council we have approximately 5,000 adults are involved, on an ongoing basis, with our troops…

5,000 volunteers give about 4 hours of their time EACH week…
            That’s 20,000 hours each week…
                        Multiply that by about 36 weeks each year…
                                    That’s 720,000 hours each year.
Or to put it another way, it is the equivalent of 82 years EACH year!!!

Add to that program volunteers, site directors, training volunteers, first aid trainers…and we’re talkin’ some significant time!!!!

Our 24,000 girls are very fortunate to have each of you. YOU make this great program happen for them.

I speak for our staff and our Board in saluting the vital work that you do bring the best possible leadership development program to our girls in 10-counties.

THANK YOU! You are the reason we are a GREAT Girl Scout Council!!!!
