Local Girl Scouts and their families from Geneva Girl Scout Service Unit 409, part of the Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways (GSNYPENN) council, will participate in a day of service this Sunday at Finger Lakes Community College Geneva Campus Center in Geneva.
The Service Unit is hosting Chalk It Up on Sunday, September 20, from 12–4 p.m. Girl Scouts and their families will take over the blacktop in the campus’s parking lot circle (which will be roped off to vehicles) to leave inspiring and encouraging pictures and messages for the community.
“We can always use more positivity in our lives, but especially now during this challenging time. Our day of service allows our Girl Scouts and their families to leave a positive impact on our community,” says Karina Connolly, Communications Co-Manager for Geneva Girl Scout Service Unit 409.
Each Girl Scout and her immediate family signed up for a half-hour time slot. Due to social distancing measures, five families will take part in leaving positive messages and drawings on the blacktop at a time. All participants will be masked.
Giving back is always in season at Girl Scouts. Girls and their troops continually look for meaningful ways to contribute to their communities to help make the world a better place right now. When Girl Scouts give back, it helps them understand what it really means to live by the Girl Scout Promise and Law.
