Northern NJ (PRWEB) December 08, 2011
The Girl Scout Councils of New Jersey are proud to announce FLOMO® as a Leadership Sponsor for its 100th Anniversary events. A longtime supporter of Girl Scouting, FLOMO helps to mark the organization’s 100th anniversary through its contributions to November’s bridging event on the George Washington Bridge as well as to the culminating B.I.G. (Believe in Girls) Celebration at Liberty State Park in June 2012.
In support of the bridging event, FLOMO donated reusable and stylish lunch bags to each girl who attended and operated a pop-up store at the event, selling FLOMO products and donating a percentage of the proceeds to their Sponsorship. FLOMO also held a fundraiser in support of November’s event, encouraging its tri-state area, business-to-business customers to place orders and contributing a percentage of those proceeds to the Sponsorship as well. FLOMO will support June’s final 100th anniversary event with these contributions as well.
“FLOMO recognizes the critical role that Girl Scouts plays in developing today’s female leaders,” said Helen Wronski, CEO & President of the Girl Scouts of Northern NJ. “We are so lucky to have found such a great partner and supporter in FLOMO and are grateful for their endless dedication to our organization. Our girls loved the colorful and fresh souvenir lunch bags and shopping in the FLOMO shop at our recent centennial bridging event, and we look forward to their participation in our event in June.”
“We are dedicated to helping and inspiring girls to become leaders within their communities. Our commitment stems from being a woman-owned business and the fact that most of the consumers who use our products are female,” said Wendy Shen, CEO of FLOMO/Nygala Corporation. “It is important to us to continue to support Girl Scouts in their future endeavors, since the organization plays such a key role in developing future women leaders. We are honored to align ourselves with such an empowering organization for girls, which encourages them throughout their lifetime and helps shape their future careers and leadership values.”
In addition to its statewide contributions to the Girl Scout Councils of New Jersey for the 100th anniversary, FLOMO supports the Girl Scouts of Northern New Jersey all year long by sponsoring its annual Eco Trek event, Women of Achievement award ceremony, and summer internships, as well as developing a “Future CEO” program for Girl Scouts to attend at FLOMO’s headquarters.
