Each year, we celebrate Volunteer Appreciation Month during the month of April in honor of all of the hard work, dedication, and heart that our Girl Scout volunteers display every day. Volunteering truly is a work of heART, and Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines is more than thankful for each and every one of our volunteers.
Whether it be planning an event or troop meeting, helping a Girl Scout plan for her highest awards, or packing up a car full of Girl Scout cookies for a cookie booth, our volunteers are the true meaning of selfless service. There are many ways that we can show our volunteers that we appreciate the time and energy that they put into volunteering. Check out some of the ways that you can show your appreciation this month below.
