This is a Call! Bilingual Volunteers Needed

In Dalton, GA, The Daily Citizen has a story today proclaiming that Hispanic Girl Scout Leaders are seeking volunteers in their community. In Dalton alone, there are five Hispanic Girl Scout Troops, but there are not enough volunteers to sustain them.

A private grant through the nonprofit Goizueta Foundation in Atlanta provided $1 million to Hispanic Girl Scout troops around the state for three years. However, the program ends on June 30, and participants are still searching for bilingual volunteers to step into the roles of the three full-time and two-part time employees whose jobs are going away. Bilingual volunteers are invited to register as Girl Scout leaders to help with Hispanic troops. For more information call (706) 226-1435 or (404) 863-4759 or direct yourself here.
