This time of year, I am overwhelmed with gratitude. Most of all, I am thankful for the big, ole Brownie smiles that we are able to put on the faces of our girls.
Every day I am inspired by the network of support that we’ve built across our council. And all because each of us believes in the importance of enriching a girl’s life.
I am thankful for the parents who drive to meetings and let cookies take over their living rooms.
I am thankful for the volunteers who lend their time and energy so that girls have memories full of giggles, science projects, field trips and friendship.
I am thankful for the donors who believe so deeply in our mission that they invest in the next generation of women leaders.
It’s the thought of supporters like you that makes me proud to be a part of this organization. And that’s what puts a big Brownie smile on my face.
Yours in Girl Scouting,
Nancy L. Wright
Chief Executive Officer
Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana
