Showing love and appreciation for Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay volunteers is a long-standing Girl Scout tradition. After all, our volunteers are amazing! Our volunteers are all about the girls. We love them for it and, well, Girl Scouting wouldn’t be the same without them.
Volunteers are at the heart of the Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay organization. We simply could not serve our girls without their commitment, care, and support. We encourage Girl Scouts, their parents and caregivers, and fellow volunteers to show their appreciation often.
Here are some ideas to get you started:
Volunteer Appreciation Certificate - Use this generic certificate to recognize any volunteer for any exceptional service to Girl Scouts of the Chespeake Bay!
Volunteer Recognition Card - This simple "congrats" message is perfect for accompanying an informal award.
Volunteer Gift Tags - Print and cut out these Thank You gift tags.
