Girl Scout Troops #537, #841, #67 and #472 know what it means to volunteer for service and they practiced this last week by packing 108 bags for moms and children at Mary’s House of Hope!
You can see a live video feed we took by looking at the bottom of this post.
I talked to them a little bit about Brae’s Brown Bags and then my Mom talked a lot, she just kept going and going.
Then we got down to the real fun, the service!
In the cafeteria of Leasure Elementary School we had a HUGE assembly line set up, it was multiple cafeteria tables.
I showed everyone that if you lay the water bottle down on it’s side in the bag first it will help to keep the bag balanced and make sure nothing gets crushed.
One More Thing
But something else you should know about this event is that the girls had other stations. One table had crafty things so they could write special notes of kindness to put in the bags. The table next to that station had cards to write thank you notes for soldiers. Seeing those extra stations made me think about how much the troops are doing to make positive change. They do a lot and it is really cool.
Thank you so much!
