This year, Troop 60114 began a service project called Friends of Phenyx, where we show support to children and families battling cancer. The girls have collected letters, pictures, and gifts in support of our friend, Phenyx, who has meshenchymal chrondosarcoma.
Continuing to be inspired, the troop donated over 200 packages of cookies to Brent’s Place, a safe and clean housing community for children being treated at Children’s Hospital.

Using their cookie money, the troop purchased coloring books, activity pads, books, and other fun items and made busy bags to be handed out to children receiving treatment at Children’s Hospital.

On November 21, 2015, Girl Scouts will join  Project C.U.R.E. at Children’s Hospital Colorado for Packing for Impact, an event which helps deliver health and hope to children around the world!

In addition to filling “Kits for Kids,” girls will also learn more about the kids and countries around the world that they will be helping, earn the Girl Scout Global Action Award, and get a patch.

Kits for Kids

The “Kits for Kids” program provides personal hygiene and basic “medicine cabinet” items that are scarce in the developing world.  Project C.U.R.E. developed the “Kits for Kids” program to give families in developing countries the supplies they need to provide basic care at home. All levels of Girl Scouts are welcome to participate.
