Girl Scouts: Building Leaders
Habitat for Humanity Collaboration – Girl Scouts: Building Leaders
GSNWGL staff, volunteers, Girl Scouts, and community partners have joined together to help the Greater Fox Cities Area Habitat for Humanity build a home in Menasha, Wisconsin. Together staff, volunteers and girls are swinging hammers, raising walls, nailing siding, painting walls and much more. “This build is a great opportunity for our girls to get involved in a major, life-changing service project. It also puts our older girls in the leadership limelight as role models for our younger Girl Scouts. It’s so important for girls to have positive role models to look up to, who are making an impact in our community,” said Gail McNutt, CEO of Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes. “GSNWGL is so pleased to partner with Greater Fox Cities Area Habitat for Humanity, and couldn’t thank the John J. & Ethel D. Keller Fund enough for their generous support of the build.”
The full house sponsorship is made possible by The John J. and Ethel D. Keller Fund at the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley, with additional support from Associated Bank. The build will run from June 19 through September 8, 2012. We need your help – a family needs your help. Girl Scouts that are 16 years** or older may participate in the build, and younger girls can participate in special off-site programming associated with the build as well. Whether you can swing a hammer, cut a straight line, cook, paint, or landscape, there are many ways you can get involved! Visit our online form to register today!
