At Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana (GSGCNWI), we are grateful for you: our members, volunteers, and supporters, who keep the heartbeat of Girl Scouts going.

Thank you for your continued commitment to keeping our girls happy, safe, and comforted, especially as we stay apart this holiday season.

Our CEO, Nancy Wright, has a special message for everyone. Watch below:

What are you grateful for?

Girl Scout Amy shares what she is grateful for this year

We want to know what you’re thankful for this year. Join us for a community art project and get the spirit of gratitude going.

What helped you get through 2020? Was it your Girl Scout sisters, your troop leader, your friends and family, or maybe your pet? Use our thankful trefoil to tell us!

Here’s how you can participate:

  1. Download the thankful trefoil and print or trace it from your screen!
  2. Fill in the trefoil with words or drawing of something you’re grateful for (like Amy did in the photo above). Be creative!
  3. Then, take a photo of yourself with your creation, and share it with us. Tag us on social media @GirlScoutsGCNWI and use the hashtag #GirlScoutsGCNWI. Or, upload the pictures to our website.

We can’t wait to see your creations! Happy Thanksgiving from GCNWI!
