Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont – known also as “GSCP2P” – is a United Way agency that’s one of 111 councils nationwide chartered by Girl Scouts of the USA to offer Girl Scout programs within specific geographic boundaries.
This regional council serves nearly 7,000 girls and 4,500 adult volunteers in 40 counties, and it maintains three camp properties and four service centers.
Now the group is opening a service center in Greensboro – citing an expectation of higher visibility for the group as one reason.
The Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont Triad Service Center will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony on Tuesday, Feb. 14 at 11 a.m. The celebration will be at 303 Pisgah Church Road, Suite C, in Greensboro.
The ribbon cutting is being held in partnership with the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce.
Girl Scouts and their families, as well as other interested parties are invited to attend.
Nearly a decade and a half ago, GSCP2P merged from three smaller councils into a larger Girl Scout council that began serving 40 counties in western and central North Carolina. Greensboro will now be a central location for many of those activities.
Jennifer Wilcox, the CEO of the Peaks to Piedmont organization, said this center in Greensboro will help draw attention to the group.
“We are excited to be in this new space, in an area where we can gain visibility for our organization and be convenient to our girls and volunteers,” Wilcox said. “This service center will also serve as our first experience center model, giving our members a place where they can gather as troops and have access to all their Girl Scout needs.”
