Align Credit Union truly embraces the credit union philosophy of "people helping people," especially through their community involvement.

This month they are featuring Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains. Girl Scouts, which has more than 1.7 million girls active in their organization around the world, was first organized in Georgia back in 1912. With the vision of the first troop’s leader, Girl Scouts continues today with the goal of building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.

Some might think the only way to get involved with Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains is to have your child join the organization. However, there is more than one way to get involved. Girl Scouts is always looking for volunteers. Whether you know about healthy living, entrepreneurship, or the outdoors, Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains have a variety of role categories they are seeking volunteers for.

If you don’t have much time to volunteer, you can also help the program by donating. Some of their options include matching gifts, charitable gift annuity, shopping with AmazonSmile, or donating your vehicle. They also offer an option to Fund-a-Girl.

The Fund-a-Girl option helps Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains ensure every girl in New Hampshire and Vermont who wants to be a Girl Scout can, regardless of their family’s economic circumstances. The amount you help with through the program allows a girl to create memories she will remember at camp while learning about the outdoors and making new friends. It can also cover the cost of a Girl Scout membership and uniform fees.

Don’t wait to make a difference, donate today to the Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains by visiting their website.
