When girls participate in Girl Scouts, they have the opportunity to explore their own talents and discover the benefits of teamwork.
To earn their Bronze Award, Junior Troop 2309 decided to donate hand-knitted hats to help toddlers stay warm and cozy this winter season. The girls used a portion of their cookie proceeds to purchase looms, yarns, hooks and needles. They learned how to knit hats and then they taught these skills to Troops 418, 681, 1866 and 2192. Together, they completed 122 hats!
The troop donated the hand-knitted hats to Helen's Hope Chest, a non-profit organization, providing clothing and hygiene items to foster and kinship families.
Troop 2309 not only demonstrated leadership skills, but they learned that working together makes a bigger difference in the world. What a great example of the Girl Scout principles of service and sisterhood!
