Our friends on the Advisory Committee of the Nassau County Bar Association’s WE CARE Fund have chosen to support our Girl Scouts Where You Live (GSWYL) Program.
GSWYL makes Girl Scouting possible for girls who live in low income housing or homeless shelters to participate in Staff-led Troops; earning badges, having fun, making friends and growing in self-confidence. “This gracious donation benefits and affects the GSWYL Program significantly,” said Girl Scouts of Nassau County Executive Director and CEO Donna Ceravolo. “Girl Scouting offers amazing programs and opportunities to girls. WE CARE has made it possible to reach and offer opportunities to all girls in Hempstead.” The Nassau County Bar Association’s WE CARE Fund assists GSWYL in arranging exciting opportunities for girls; Aladdin on Broadway, roller skating, Long Island Children’s Museum sleepover, the circus, and the Liberty Science Museum. GSWYL makes it possible to deliver activities in or near home or neighboring schools to allow for participation without concerns such as a lack of transportation, resources, or volunteers. In addition, GSWYL works to provide games and special holiday projects designed to be completed in one session because living situations are often temporary. The Nassau County Bar Association was founded in 1899 and is a not-for-profit professional membership association for attorneys. The WE CARE Fund is the nationally recognized charitable arm of the Nassau County Bar Association. Its mission is to distribute charitable grants to improve the quality of life for children, the elderly and others in need throughout Nassau County. One of WE CARE’s highly anticipated events is the Children’s Holiday Festival where underserved children are invited for an afternoon of food and fun, DJ music and dancing, games, gifts and more. All this is made possible through generous donations to WE CARE from the legal community and community at large. Girl Scouts of Nassau County is grateful for the opportunity to provide a safe place where every girl is inspired to change the world and the generous support of the Nassau County Bar Association’s WE CARE Fund helps make that possible.
