Gift of Caring
Gift of Caring is a service project that allows the cookie with a mission to continue to improves lives and build communities!
For many years, Girl Scouts across the country have used Girl Scout Cookies to show their appreciation for heroes in their community or men and women in uniform. Girls choose an organization they want to benefit and give customers the opportunity to purchase cookies as a donation.
For various reasons, some customers do not want to buy cookies for themselves. With Gift of Caring, they have a chance to give to others while supporting Girl Scouting at the same time.
This year, GSCNC would like to focus our Gift of Caring efforts towards Home Town Heroes.
To identify what Hometown Heroes the troop would like to support for their Gift
choose. Develop an ongoing relationship of service.
2. Communicate to customers that by supporting your Gift of Caring, cookies they purchase will be donated to your chosen group. The more the girls know about their Heroes, the better able they are to deliver the message to potential customers. You can post or make copies of the flyer found on the Little Brownie Bakers website http://www.littlebrowniebakers.com/ . Have girls create colorful cookie booth drop box for customers to place their donations.
3. Deliver the cookies at the end of Cookie Season. When girls can see the affect of their service, the lasting impact is so much greater.
The GSCNC Council and Mobile Shops make available a special patch to recognize girls
