Thankful to Be a Girl Scout VolunteerNovember 24, 2013
By Craven County Girl Scout volunteers, Service Unit 618
Without the generous support of our adult volunteers, Girl Scouts NC Coastal Pines could not carry out its mission to build girls of courage, confidence, and character. Our volunteers make it possible to deliver the Girl Scout program helping girls become our future leaders.
In this season of remembrance and thanks, we are so grateful for our volunteers! And we just love hearing the many reasons why our volunteers in Craven County are thankful for their Girl Scout experience!
