How can Service Units use the refund?
GSGATL is not putting any limits on how a Service Unit uses its
refund. As long as the Service Unit is in line with Girl Scout
policies, standards & procedures found in Volunteer Essentials,
then the Service Unit is free to distribute the ReFUND however they
see fit. The Service Unit can use the money to fund their own summer
day camps, offer financial aid for girls to attend events, make
refunds back to the troop that made the initial solicitation…The
choice is up to the Service Unit! Just make sure the Service Unit has
communicated their intention prior to asking adults to participate in
making the solicitations.
Does my spirit night event need a First Aider?
The Beyond the Troop Event (BTTE) application will require you
to add the name of a First Aider but not all spirit nights will
actually need one on hand for the duration of the event.
your judgement. Is your spirit night is at a skating rink that is
making a donation based on how many skaters attend on a given night?
Then yes, you need a First Aider. Is your spirit night is at a
restaurant that is making a donation based on how many families come
through the drive-thru from 4-8 pm? Then no, you would not need a
First Aider. The BTTE form requires you enter that information though,
so if you DO NOT need one at your event, simply fill in “spirit night”
or “N/A” in that area of the form. If Risk Management disagrees, and
thinks a First Aider is required for your type of event, we will
certainly let you know!
