More than 20 G.I.R.L.s (go-getters, innovators, risk-takers, and leaders) from central Colorado Springs went caroling at Union Printers Home on Saturday, December 12, 2018.
Girls from different troops and service units made new friends in sister Girl Scouts and residents of the facility as they caroled up and down the historic halls. The 126-year-old building was brightened with holiday crafts, songs, and smiles.
Girl Scout Junior Troop 71020 helped select and wrap gifts for Santa Cops of Larimer County. The gifts will be delivered by law enforcement to low-resource families this holiday season. The troop has been volunteering with Santa Cops for the past four years.
The Jays Service Unit in Aurora celebrated the holidays with a party and caroling at the Garden Plaza of Aurora Senior Living Center on Sunday, December 11. Garden Plaza gives the Jays SU free meeting space for our monthly Service Unit meetings. We were excited to be able to get to know some of the residents and strengthen this community partnership.
More than 30 Girl Scouts did crafts and played holiday games with the residents of the independent living center before going to the assisted living center to sing carols for the residents that could not attend the party.
It was wonderful to see members of different generations connect and to share some holiday joy!
