The world's population is more than half female. And yet only 7% of all philanthropic dollars donated currently get donated to programs which support girls and women. Don't all girls deserve more support to enable them to become future leaders and entrepreneurs in our community and world?
Girl Scouts is the premier girl leadership organization in our country, so what we do to support the Girl Scout programs really benefit us and our community.
The Lanier Service Unit of Girl Scouts supports the delivery of Girl Scouts in our local communities (Suwanee, Sugar Hill and Buford). But our Thin Mint Sprint event proceeds benefit the Girl Scout Council of Greater Atlanta, helping to provide girl leadership programs to the 34,000+ girls supported by this Council. We do this because we know that in order for our world, country, state and country to do better, we need to , as well as helping to train volunteers to lead Girl Scout troops.
