Girl Scout Troop donates Books and Knitted Caps

Tagged in: community, Events

Fifth grade girls in Girl Scout troop 17384 from several Katy-area schools worked together on their Bronze Award projects during the spring. Though they all worked together, half of the troop focused on hand-making ABC and 1-2-3 books and acquiring book donations from friends, family, neighbors, and local stores. The other half of the troop knitted caps for premature babies and cancer patients for those at a Katy-area hospital.

When the girls delivered their first collection of book donations, they enjoyed a tour of the 5th Ward Head Start preschool in Houston and meeting the students and teachers. 

Caps were knitted by the troop girls as well as collected by other troops who knitted caps and will be donated to a Katy area hospital.
All eight girls of troop 17384 bridged into Cadettes and are already looking forward to working on their Silver Award project.
