4 Awesome Ways to Thank Your Girl Scout Volunteer

April is National Volunteer Month! Celebrate your favorite Girl Scout volunteers with these thoughtful ideas. Whether you choose to do one activity or all, you’re sure to make the volunteers in your life feel loved and appreciated and remember all the reasons why they continue to give their time and hearts to the Girl Scout mission.

1. Surprise them with a special card! Who doesn’t love a beautiful card? This month, show the Girl Scout volunteer in your life—your Girl Scout VIP!—just how much they mean to you by making a thoughtful card with a personalized message. Add cutouts, stickers, decorations, and words of gratitude from the entire troop! Start by personalizing one of the cards below:

2. Shout them out on social media! What better way to make your favorite Girl Scout volunteer feel special than to shout ‘em out for the world to know? They’re the best, and you’re proud to say it loud and clear: I love my Girl Scout volunteer! Head over to Instagram stories and share why this volunteer (or volunteers!) is so special to you. Make sure to tag @girlscouts. We’ll feature some of your responses.

3. Write them a handwritten letter! That’s right. Imagine their surprise when they open their mailbox and find an old-school letter from you. Need a little inspiration? Here are a few things you could include:
  • Why your favorite Girl Scout volunteer is so special?
  • An especially memorable time when you were happy to have their guidance and support
  • How they have made a difference in your life
  • Your three favorite things about them

4. Show your gratitude with a gift from the Girl Scout Shop!
During National Volunteer Week (April 17-23), use code THANKS22 for 15% off* orders totaling $75 or more. Bring a smile to a volunteer’s face with a fun little token of your appreciation.
