Dear Friends -

Girl Scouts of Nassau County’s Girl Scouts Where You Live brings staff-led troops and a series of programs into communities where a lack of adult volunteers, family stresses, lack of convenient and safe transportation, cultural or language barriers and/or lack of financial resources would deprive girls of the opportunity to participate in Girl Scouts and all the leadership and learning opportunities that Girl Scouting provides.

Two particular staff led troops that are near to my heart are Troops 4100 at 100 Terrace Avenue and Troop 1397 at Barack Elementary in Hempstead.  GSNC’s ability to provide staff leadership and financial assistance to these troops means the girls are able to reap the benefits of all that Girl Scouting Leadership Experience has to offer.

Over the years, the girls in these troops have gained important skills in STEM, life skills, the outdoors and entrepreneurship – the foundation of the Girl Scout leadership experience.  These girls have attended Camp Blue Bay in the Hamptons, attended Broadway shows in NYC, and enjoyed live musical and cultural shows including the opportunity to interact with the professional actors, musicians and back-stage crews. 

They have also learned sportsmanship from local college athletes, learned how to care for themselves from local healthcare providers, and visited local ethnic restaurants to sample different foods and cultures. These activities have allowed the girls give back to their schools and the community through service projects.

These girls are not only the leaders of tomorrow in their communities but are the leaders of today.

I personally have donated membership and program supplies for 25 girls in these troops. While I am not asking you to do what I have done, my personal fundraising goal is to double that number.  To accomplish this, I would like 25 of my family and friends to consider donating at least $125 or more to GSNC.

Please help me ensure that all girls in these troops continue to have opportunities that will help them become the future leaders of tomorrow.

My deepest thanks-
Allison
