'Tis the Season of Giving

The holiday season is a time for giving and what better way is there to give than through Girl Scouting? We have a rich history of empowering girls to make a difference and improve their communities by serving. This season girls across southeastern Michigan are giving back to the community. 


Troop # 71193 volunteered with the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, Inc. Michigan Chapter to prepare and pack care packages for children living with sickle cell conditions. The 10 member Daisy Troop learned about the disease while assembling the baskets. The Daisies meet at Chrysler Elementary School in Detroit.


In Farmington Hills, Junior Girl Scout Troop #70450, out of Warner Upper Elementary School, created and delivered boxes of toys, clothes, games, and other gifts to Botsford hospital. The care packages will be given to children who are receiving treatment.


Since 1912, Girl Scout groups have participated in community service projects addressing everything from serving senior citizens, baking for troops, to improving the environment.
