NONPROFIT SPOTLIGHT
                                               

  Girl Scouts Heart of the South


Girl Scouts Heart of the South just wrapped up its regular summer camping sessions. Campers could attend Kamp Kiwani in Middleton, TN, or Camp Tik-A-Witha in Van Vleet, MS. Swimming, kayaking, horseback riding, archery, arts and crafts, hiking, and cookouts were just a few of the activities enjoyed by campers and counselors alike. 

This week Camp Tik-A-Witha hosts its annual Elizabeth Gwin session for special needs campers. With an all-volunteer staff and a "Yes I can" spirit, campers will participate in every activity offered for all other campers. 

Girl Scouting is not just about camping. Last week a group of young ladies took a trip to New York City. Some of their activities included attending the U.S. Soccer Women’s National Team celebration parade, visiting Harlem and the Apollo Theater, and walking to Chinatown and Little Italy. And what trip to NYC would be complete without dropping in on Rockefeller Plaza during the Today show?




MARK YOUR CALENDARS!
On Thursday, September 19, Volunteer NEMS is partnering with United Way of NEMS and Tupelo Young Professionals to host a nonprofit expo at BancorpSouth Arena. The public will be invited to learn from the 100 nonprofits represented what the agencies do, where donations go, and how volunteers make a difference. If your agency is already registered on the Mississippi Hub Network (see list at right), you will receive an invitation to participate with a link to register. If your agency is not yet on the Hub, register now. The Hub is a free service, and the nonprofit expo is free as well.
