Your Donor Connection (November 2015)

  • O.W.L.S. (Outdoor Weekend Learning Spectacular) Event

    Camping out under the stars! Canoeing over a placid lake! Cooking in a box oven! Do the troop leaders in your Service Unit want to learn these skills so they can share the joys of the outdoors with their girls? The upcoming O.W.L.S. (Outdoor Weekend Learning Spectacular) event provides all of these learning opportunities and more! Once again, this event will be held at Camp Rocky Ledges near Milton, WV, over the weekend beginning May 13 and ending May 15. More details about specific workshops will be available soon.

  • 2016 Service Unit Administrative Volunteers' Retreats!

    Would you like more information about your position within the Service Unit? Would you love the opportunity to spend time with other Service Unit team members, sharing ideas and success stories? Would learning about ways to manage conflict or inspire volunteers help make your Service Unit shine? Our Service Unit Administrative Volunteers’ Retreats are the answer! We are in the planning stages for two Retreats to be held in August of 2016. These Retreats will not only give you the opportunity to attend valuable workshops to help with your position, but will also provide you with a relaxed, open environment to be able to network with members of your local Service Unit and with members of neighboring Service Units, too. Keep watching for more information about these exciting events! 

  • Volunteer Toolkit – Exciting New Resource for Troop Leaders!

    The Volunteer Toolkit is a new digital planning tool that gives troop leaders resources and program content to get their year started—and keep it going smoothly! Fully customizable, the toolkit is digitally responsive so they can plan and prepare practically anywhere.

    Girls have more fun when they can shape their own experience, do hands-on activities, and work together as teams. With the new toolkit, girls and leaders can explore meeting topics and program activities together, and follow the fun as they plan their Girl Scout year.

    The current Volunteer Toolkit is designed for Daisy, Brownie and Junior troops. A Cadette module will be released soon. What about Multi-Level troops? For Multi-Level troops, there are two options:

    Option 1 is to choose the grade level that represents the majority of the girls in the troop.  This will give the troop leader access to the Journey and badge programming for that grade level. 

    Option 2 is for a multi-level troop to break into grade level troops. The current troop leader can be listed as the troop leader for each troop.  They will be able to toggle back and forth between the troops in their personalized Volunteer Toolkit and have access to the programming for each grade level.

    For more information regarding assigning troop numbers to multi-level troops, please contact your Troop Support Manager</...

  • #GivingTuesday

    This year, on Tuesday, December 1, 2015, Girl Scouts of Black Diamond Council is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving.

    Last year, more than 27,000 organizations in 68 countries came together to celebrate #GivingTuesday.  Since its founding in 2012, #GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world, resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours, and activities that bring about real change in communities.  We invite you to join the movement and to help get out and give this December 1.  Some ideas include:

    • Get Social:
      • Spread the word about why you support Girl Scouts of Black Diamond on #GivingTuesday via social media (facebook, twitter, youtube) and let the world know why they should too!
      • Join the #UNeelfie Campaign. The #UNselfie, or the selfless selfie, is a powerful way to show how you are giving and why giving is important to you. Take a selfie and add a caption or card in the picture explaining how or why you and/or your friends are giving this year. Post it on facebook, Instagram or twitter and be sure to use the hashtags #UNselfit and #GivingTuesday
    • Volunteer:
      • Volunteer! We have a wide variety of volunteer opportunities available with flexible hours.

  • Get Ready for an Improved Experience!

    Imagine a world where girls and volunteers join Girl Scouts with ease, the process of becoming a troop leader is completed in a few days (instead of weeks!) and volunteers and families can easily get the support they need, in ways that best fit their schedules and lives.

    Can you imagine it? We can too, and we’re ready to make it a reality!

    That’s why we’re introducing the Customer Engagement Initiative (CEI), an interactive and user-friendly new way to connect with Girl Scouts and support the girls in your life. From a faster and easier joining and renewal process, to improved resources for volunteers, the Customer Engagement Initiative is all about serving you better.

    The Customer Engagement Initiative will include:

      New Girl Scout Website: We’ve streamlined our website to make it faster to find exactly what you’re looking for—whether you’re on a computer, tablet or phone! Online Volunteer Toolkit: The Volunteer Toolkit is a digital resource designed to make it much easier for K-5 troop leaders to manage troops, prepare for and lead meetings, and connect with other volunteers. Volunteer Systems: Systems is behind-the-scenes technology that will make it easier and quicker for our members to join Girl Scouts, serve as a volunteer, register for programs, get up-to-date information and so much more.

    Want to be a part of the Region 4 recruitment team? I'm looking for volunteers throughout the region who are interested in helping with recruitment. If interested email me at or call 304-590-1054.

  • Registering members within your Service Unit has two great benefits!

    Registering members within your Service Unit has two great benefits!  The Girl Scouts of Black Diamond Council awards a subsidy payment to the Service Unit based on the number of girls registered.  The more girls registered, the more funds will be available for use in the Service Unit to hold events and recognitions.  Also, the more  selling cookies, the more cookies sold and if your SU increases sales by 10-15%, the SU receives more proceeds per case of cookies.  A win, win situation!

    Questions? Contact your Regional Recruitment Manager.

  • Girl members have a special way that you can share Girl Scouts with your friends!

    Girl members have a special way that you can share Girl Scouts with your friends!  Join us on November 18th as we flood the region with Girl Scout spirit. Wear your Girl Scout gear to school and invite a friend to an event or troop meeting.

    When your friend joins Girl Scouts, you receive this cute as can be, fun for all patch!

    This promotion will continue through at least January.

  • Don't miss out! Invite a friend to volunteer with Girl Scouts and get $50 to shop at our online store. Your friend gets a gift, too!


    Starting in the month of November, we are promoting a GSUSA Invite a Friend campaign!  Please share with Service Units, Leaders and friends! 


    Adult volunteers are invited to Invite a Friend to become a leader- this may be for a multi age troop to divide into individual aged troops or a sister troop to accommodate a large number of girls into more manageable troops sizes or a new troop in an area without a troop.  The person who invites the new member receives $50 to be used in the GSUSA online store and the 'invitee' receives a tote bag, girl guide and pins to get the troop started.  Not only that, but Black Diamond provides a journey set to new troops, too!  Please share the news!



    Flyers are available. For hard copies, please contact your Regional Recruitment Manager.

  • Make next summer her best summer yet!

    Do you know a Girl Scout Cadette, Senior, or Ambassador who's seeking the experience of a lifetime? Summer 2016 Destinations have just been released, and they look amazing! From surfing camp on the east coast and breathtaking hikes out west to the crazy-cool wonder of new cultures abroad, there's an incredible trip waiting for every girl! Whether she's dreaming of kayaking to an island campsite, passionate about protecting animal habitats, or looking to explore the cobblestone alleys of Europe, there is a Girl Scout Destination trip for her. Destinations bring together girls from across the US and the world. She'll have the time of her life—and make new friends along the way.

    Any girl in grades 6–12 can apply by the council deadline of November 1st. Encourage her to take a look at this year's Destinations!  Also, check out the Getaways too.  Troops/groups can apply for these experiences.

    If your girl is not quite old enough to participate in Destinations, be sure to Kathy Storage, the Camp and Travel Manager, to learn about the programs and summer camps available to her.

  • Every Kid in the Park Initiative

    With Every Kid in a Park, fourth-grade Girl Scouts will have access to educational programs at our national parks that are designed just for their age group. And they can start now! Encourage your girl to visit, click on the Every Kid in a Park link, and complete one of the engaging educational activities (again, designed just for fourth-graders). She’ll receive a downloadable paper voucher giving her and her family free access to any national park, seashore, or historic monument/site for one year.

  • Customer Engagement Initiative

    Customer Engagement Initiative

    IMAGINE A WORLD where girls and volunteers join Girl Scouts with ease. New volunteers are recruited and complete the process to become a leader in a matter of days instead of weeks or months. Volunteers receive the support they need when they need it. Girl and volunteer retention is on the rise.

    That time is coming!

    GSUSA reviewed the state of councils in the nation and determined we needed a complete overhaul of our on-boarding process. Changes need to be made from the moment we have a potential volunteer who wants to come in and help, how they get the information, through registration and the background/approval screening process.

    The Customer Engagement Initiative focuses on making sure councils have well thought out processes and systems to make things easier for both recruitment and retention. The goal is to make sure we are consistently providing a quality experience  - resulting in girl and volunteer membership growth. Efforts will focus on the Girl Scout experience being more user-friendly, taking less time to volunteer and becoming more enjoyable for all involved. Development of this project has been supported by GSUSA to ensure the long-term sustainability of Girl Scouts.

    GSBDC began preparing for this system and roll-out in the spring with plans to launch this winter.

  • Girl Scout Ranger Program

    The National Park Service (NPS) and Girl Scouts of the United States of America (GSUSA) have partnered to create the Girl Scout Ranger Program. Through this program you are invited to explore the outdoors and learn about the history of national parks


    Girl Scouts are encouraged to participate in a variety of existing, organized educational or service projects, such as interpretive tours, Junior Ranger programs, service projects and environmental education programs. They also can design their own experience or project to align with Journey work, badge activities, or a Take Action or Highest Award project.

    Girls Scouts participating in 5 hours of activities at parks get a certificate and those members participating in 10 hours receive a patch. It’s important to note that the patches are FREE to any girl who completes these hours. The certificates will be downloadable on the national park service website, so either a park ranger or a troop leader can download the certificates.

    Another thing that should be mentioned is that next year is the National Park Service centennial. This could lead to even more oppo...

  • Camp Out on the White House Lawn

    In honor of the National Park Service Centennial, the Let’s Move campaign and Great Outdoors Month, Girl Scouts had the sleepover of a lifetime during the first ever campout on the White House South Lawn, hosted by First Lady Michelle Obama. Girls practiced tying knots, took on the rock wall, and worked on their orienteering skills. 

    The girls received a surprise visit from President Obama, who joined them for a round of campfire songs, followed by a group hug. Stargazing with NASA astronaut Cady Coleman capped off an unforgettable day for these Girl Scouts.

    The event also celebrated the release of the new Girls’ Choice Outdoor badges. While the badges themselves will be available in the fall, girls can now download guidelines for earning the Outdoor Adventurer, Horseback Riding, Archery, Paddling and Ultimate Recreation Challenge badges.

  • Ashdon Farms Issues Allergy Alert on Honey Mustard Pretzel Mix and Honey Mustard Mix

    As some of you may have seen by now, Ashdon Farms has put out a press release regarding one of our products – Honey Mustard Pretzel Mix.  The issue is that the bags delivered prior to November 15 did not list milk on their allergen warning to go along with cashews, almonds, etc.

    Prior to this release, Ashdon Farms sent corrected labels to each of our delivery agents to be applied to the product.  All of the Honey Mustard Pretzel Mix bags in our council should have the new, corrected labels.  IF they do not, DO NOT distribute them and contact Stephen Eskins at or 304-345-7722.  You can check this label on the back of the bag under the nutritional information, where it states “CONTAINS:” 

    Please note that Ashdon Farms has stated that deliveries AFTER November 15, 2015 have the corrected labeling.  All of our deliveries occurred after this date.  In the event that you have a customer who no longer wants to purchase the product due to an allergy, contact Stephen for further assistance. 


    Ashdon Farms, Waukesha, WI 53188 is alerting consumers that Honey Mustard Pretzel Mix sold under the Girl Scouts of the USA brand and Honey Mustard Mix sold under the Ashdon Farms brand distributed to consumers on or before November 15, 2015 are being recalled because milk is not declared in the “contains” statement on th...
