Girl Scout Grateful for Financial Aid

We received a note this week from Kimberly K. of Walton who received a Destinations travel grant made possible, in part by funding awarded to GSNYPENN Pathways from Girl Scouts of the USA.
Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways:
Thank you for awarding me financial assistance for my "destinations" trip to Washington State. I am sure to learn new skills and make some more friends. You have helped me so much.
Sincerely,  Kimberly K., Troop 30730
Kimberly will head to San Juan Kayak Pack Destination in Anacortes, Washington in July where she and Girl Scouts from around the world, will enjoy a journey via kayaks in search of orcas and island camping.
