How important is volunteerism to you? At Hollstadt, supporting your volunteerism is very important to us. To incorporate volunteerism in our culture, Hollstadt instituted a program called True Impact years ago. Through True Impact, we recognize and reward the volunteer efforts of our employees and partners by providing a volunteer match. For every hour that a Hollstadt employee or approved partner volunteers for an eligible charity, Hollstadt will donate $50. Hollstadt will continue to donate up to eight hours ($400) for each employee per year. The charity we are highlighting this month is the Girls Scouts which is near and dear to Cassie White’s heart.

“Girl Scouts unleashes the G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ in every girl, preparing her for a lifetime of leadership—from taking a night-time hike under the stars to accepting a mission on the International Space Station; from lobbying the city council with her troop to holding a seat in Congress; from running her own cookie business today to tackling cybersecurity tomorrow. “

Why do you volunteer with the Girl Scouts? I choose to volunteer with the Girl Scouts, not only to spend more time with my daughter, but also to show the scouts that volunteering should be part of a balanced lifestyle. I love the mission that the Girl Scouts has, including empowering future leaders and service.

How long you have been working with the Girl Scouts? I have been volunteering in some capacity since 2016.

What do you do as a volunteer? What I do is entirely dependent upon the needs of the troop. In previous years, I have brought girls to horseback riding excursions, carpooling to service events, camp, and troop activities. This year, I am the cookie manager for the 12 girls in our troop, which has definitely been an undertaking.

Any Additional information? These scouts are future leaders, and it’s an honor to watch them discover just how much they are capable of!
