Give Local 757

GSCCC is excited to be part of Give Local 757, the largest fundraising event in Hampton Roads! For 24 hours, starting at midnight on May 9, everyone can be a philanthropist by choosing a cause and making a donation to help make a positive impact on the community.

Here are the top five reasons why you should choose Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast and invest in girls as part of Give Local 757 on May 9:
  1. Girl Scouts are big thinkers, groundbreakers and role models. While some people still think of us as just cookies, campfires and friendship bracelets, Girl Scouts is so much more.
  2. When girls succeed, so does society. We provide girls with a place to discover their passion, find their voice and make a positive impact in their communities. These girls are building a better world for all of us!
  3. Giving for girls is giving for the whole community. Community service is a cornerstone of Girl Scouts. Every year, Girl Scouts collectively spend more than 75 million hours improving their communities. 
  4. Girl Scouts teaches girls to take the lead. Girl Scouts gives girls the experiences they need to become bold, honest and determined to succeed. That explains why half of all U.S. businesswomen were Girl Scouts.
  5. Girl Scouts design robots, start garage bands, and improve their communities— and yes, they sell the best cookies on the planet. These experiences are giving girls the courage, confidence and character to make the world a better place.
Mark your calendar for May 9 to give for girls. Any amount you can give will help us build the next generation of G.I.R.L.s— go-getters, innovators, risk-takers and leader. Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook for updates!
