Aug. 4—ELKHART — Underscoring its continued commitment to promoting inclusivity in the outdoors, THOR Industries, Inc. is highlighting its two-year partnership with Girl Scouts of the USA, the preeminent leadership development organization for girls grades K-12, through the short film "Stronger Together".
In the multi-year partnership, THOR sponsors GSUSA's largest and most popular outdoor event, Girl Scouts Love State Parks, according to a news release on THOR's website. The annual event is hosted in nearly 500 state parks across all 50 states and Puerto Rico. The 2022 event, occurring September 10th and 11th, will be focused on inclusivity and park stewardship.
Girl Scouts will once again incorporate THOR's sustainability program, Pick Up America, into its park stewardship efforts. Any of the nearly 75,000 Girl Scouts and families expected to participate may pledge to remove bags of trash from public lands through a custom-designed, co-branded Pick Up America website. Since the founding of the partnership, Girl Scouts have pledged to remove more than 22 tons of trash from public lands — contributing to more than 259 tons of trash pledged to be removed from public lands since the Pick Up America program launched in 2019.
"We are proud to be working with Girl Scouts and look forward to supporting their continued success in providing girls with outdoor experiences that build confident, courageous leaders," shared Bob Martin, President and CEO of THOR Industries in the release. "Girl Scouts Love State Parks is a great opportunity to connect people with nature and families with each other while promoting stewardship in state parks across our great nation."
The film, "Stronger Together: Girl Scouts and THOR's commitment to equity in the outdoors" illustrates the organizations' shared values and shared commitment to outdoor equity and environmental stewardship. To learn about GSUSA visit girlscouts.org.
