Arvada

Metro Denver

Daisy Troop 65526 is excited to announce the completion of their first service project! The girls chose to help make the world a better place by providing homeless children in the Arvada community with a sense of security and warmth, as well as education and entertainment. The girls worked with community partners and another national non-profit organization to make 15 Project Night Night bags for children under the age of 12. Each bag contained a stuffed animal, blanket, book, two toothbrushes, and mini pillow that was handmade by each girl. Each girl also made a personalized card to put in the bag she created. The girls enjoyed presenting the Arvada Police Department with the bags. Officers will be distributing the bags to homeless children in our local area over the next month.
