Ways To Recognize Volunteer Contributions
Bringing Girl Scouting to all girls is a huge task. There are times that the efforts of some are so exceptional that they deserve public recognition. There will be times when someone has contributed in an exceptional manner, but they don't possess all criteria to receive a national GSUSA award. Or their position lends to debate whether a national award would be appropriate. There are other ways in which an adult Girl Scout can be recognized:
Take time to mention service and express thanks for a task well done.
Most greeting card companies have online tools for you to send free e-cards including Blue Mountain, American Greetings, Hallmark, and e-Greetings.
Send a bouquet of flowers with a thank you note. Or send virtual flowers! Examples include virtualflowers, iflowers, and 123greetings.
Treat a volunteer with a gift certificate to one of their favorite stores.
Have a song dedicated on Girl Scout Leader’s Day–Volunteer Appreciation Day.
Have a troop deliver cookie mixes to those who made a positive impact on them.
Write what was done and by whom in a thank you article and have it published.
Recommend them for special learning session or participation in a special event.
Check on Volunteer Appreciation Awards available on your local base.
