Girl Scout Troop 70021 of Erie completed their service project last week in partnership with Boulder County Housing and Human Services and Prevent Child Abuse Colorado. The girls chose this as a service project and poured their hearts into it, bringing handfuls of gifts for kids who are in foster care or at risk of placement. They handmade about 35 puzzle pillows for the kids and they planted a pinwheel garden in honor of Child Abuse Prevention Month.
The girls also brought several boxes of diapers of various sizes and some books. They learned about preventing child abuse through strong and healthy families and talked a little about what makes their families strong. It was a beautiful service project that the girls will remember forever.
