Celebrate Girl Scout Week

By Lisa Kaminski; Manager, Community Recruitment

nypenn_2-color_crGirl Scout Week is celebrated each year, in March starting on Girl Scout Sunday and ending on Girl Scout Sabbath, and always includes March 12th, the birthday of Girl Scouting.

This year it will be celebrated March 6-12th.

Girl Scout Sunday and Sabbath give girls an opportunity to explore different faiths, attend their place of worship, and be recognized as Girl Scouts. Girls may perform community services for the place of worship as well.

A great way to share the message of Girl Scouts with the community during this week is to host a Girl Scout cookies and milk reception, after worship services. Troops can donate cookie and milk to share with parishioners, maybe have a cookie booth sale there as well, and share information about volunteering and how to join a troop.

Other ideas for Girl Scout week are learning more about WAGGGS – the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts, learning about the Juliette Low World Friendship Fund, and taking part in community service or take action projects
