Goodwill Service Project
It’s back!  Goodwill Industries provides jobs, training, and placement services for people with barriers to employment.  One of the ways they do this is through donations to their Goodwill stores.  Girls Scouts will again team up with Goodwill to collect items to be donated to any Goodwill store or drop box.   This project begins October 9 and runs through November 19.  More info about this project will be on gsnim.org soon!
 
New Ways to Volunteer
The 4-12 team has a lot of exciting new ways for adults to volunteer and work with tweens and teens. Know someone who would be interested in leading a 6 week series?  Love to travel and think it would be fun to take a group of girls to see the world?  Enjoy planning events?  We have opportunities for you.  For more information contact Brooke at brooke.gittings@gsnim.org or 800-283-4812, ext. 303.
