Brave Beanie Project: Troop 40418

Girl Scout Troop 40418 did a virtual party with The Brave Beanie Project, a local organization,  and made 6 beanies. The beanies will go to kids across the country who are chronically ill or have disabilities. What a fun and meaningful project!

This is a great service project for ages 10 and up. No special skills are needed, and the organization provided all of the supplies and ran a 1 hour Google class for us. The hat part of the beanies are crocheted by volunteers; and our girls put on the yarn hair with a crochet hook and then styled it.

Service Unit Planning Meeting

We will have an in person Service Unit meeting in the café in Wegman’s State College on January 8th at 1PM.

We hope that every troop will send a representative so that we can start planning community wide events in 2020. Attending Service Unit meetings is a great way to meet other troop leaders, ask questions, and learn what kinds of things other troops in the area are doing.

Gabriel Patches

As part of their Bronze Project, girls from Troop 40170 designed a Gabriel Patch for girls who want to help expectant mothers. Girls can earn this patch by learning about organizations that help expectant or new mothers and then helping expectant or new mothers either by volunteering time or donating supplies.

Proceeds from the patch sale will be used to buy supplies for the Gabriel Project at Our Lady of Victory Catholic Church. The Gabriel Project works with women in crisis pregnancies to provide them with needed supplies and support. Troops wishing to learn more about the OLV Gabriel Project can email troop40170@statecollegegirlscouts.org.
