‘Tis the Season to Give Thanks!

Thanksgiving is always such a fun time of year for Girl Scouts because it’s a feeling that we have for our supporters year-round. There’s just no way we’d be where we are without the help of parents, volunteers, donors, Girl Scouts and staff. It’s because of wonderful people like you that we’re able to provide amazing opportunities for girls across northeast Texas. So what do we have to be thankful for this year?

Who can forget the IcePocalypse of the 2015 Girl Scout Cookie season? Dallas was hit with an out-of-this world winter storm that most certainly affected cookie deliveries. Thankfully, Girl Scouts and volunteers stayed positive and after lots of snow days, got the cookie selling back up and running!

Sometimes it’s hard to answer the age-old question, ‘What are you thankful for this year?’.  But we do have a lot to be thankful for.

And as it turns out, all of the efforts made by our supporters will provide us with everything we’ll ever need to be thankful for, so long as we’re in the business of building girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place.

We are so glad to be a part of your family. Happy Thanksgiving!
