LA Times Readers' Choice Award for Best Charity/Nonprofit Goes to...

Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles has won the Los Angeles Times Readers’ Choice Award for Best Charity/Nonprofit of Southern California in 2011!

"The Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles do more than just spoil us with indulgent desserts," writes the LA Times. "Their organization facilitates the growth and empowerment of girls across Los Angeles County. Surfing, hiking and camping — as well as community service projects — all cultivate courage, confidence and character. Each year, Girl Scouts contribute 750,000 hours of community service to local and global charities. Who knew so much could be found in a box of cookies?"

With the help of over 22,000 volunteers and in collaboration with schools and nonprofit organizations, Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles serves over 40,000 girls.

Congrats to Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles!
