More Girl Scout Volunteers Needed!

We are still in need of more Girl Scouts (Grades 6-12) to volunteer for this service project!  Please give of your time so we can show the community what Girl Scouts can do!  If you are an adult and wish to volunteer, please feel free to sign up along with your daughter.  We really want to make an impact on the community with this service project!



Our Girl Scout community is sponsoring a special service project for parents here in Cache Valley.  We are providing free babysitting for children 2 - 8 (who are potty trained) so that parents can do some holiday shopping.  

We need Girl Scouts to help with this service project by donating their time to babysit during the event.  You can volunteer to help with this event if you are a Cadette or older (Grades 6-12). 

It will take place on Friday November 21st from 6:00-8:00pm at the Whittier Center.  There will be adults available to help with any questions or needs.

You can use the link below to sign up to volunteer.   Please email Ellen (ellenanded6@yahoo.com) if you have any questions.  

The number of children we can accept is determined by the number of Girl Scouts that volunteer.  This is a great opportunity to get service hours, live the Girl Scout law and help out the community!
