Older girl volunteers needed for Project C.U.R.E.’s Packing for Impact

Older girl volunteers are needed for Project C.U.R.E.’s Packing for Impact on Saturday, December 1, 2018 at Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children. Multiple shifts are available.

Sign up to volunteer at: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b044caea72fabf85-2018

Project C.U.R.E.’s Packing for Impact is an opportunity for Girl Scouts from all over Colorado to come together to change the lives of families around the world by filling Kits for Kids, engaging in fun activities, and learning about children around the world that they will be helping.

This year, we are also looking for five Girl Scout Senior or Ambassador troops or groups to lead activity stations. Girls are welcome to design their own activities or lead activities designed by Girl Scouts of Colorado. If interested in volunteering at this event, please sign up at: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b044caea72fabf85-2018

While this event is in Denver, it is a wonderful volunteer opportunity for older girls across the Front Range! Girls can complete community service hours, Program Aide internship hours, or work on earning the Service to Girl Scouting Bar.

Save the Date: Packing for Impact returns this fall

Project C.U.R.E.’s Packing for Impact is back! Mark your calendars for Saturday, Nov. 18, 2017 for this year’s event, which will be held at Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children in Denver. Troops will have the opportunity to gather medical supplies to donate and we’ll have some fun, new activities. Participating Girl Scouts will get a patch this year with a new, fun design.

We’re also looking for older Girl Scouts to help plan activity tables for the event. This is an ideal service project for Cadettes and older or for Program Aide internships. Help us plan a great event!

Registration information is coming soon. For information on when registration opens, to help plan activities, or help the day of the event, please contact GSCO Community Partnerships Manager Lori Thompson at lori.thompson@gscolorado.org.

Loveland

Brownie Troop 71020 from Loveland used a portion of their cookie proceeds to purchase supplies for first-aid kits. The girls worked together to assemble 20 kits, which will be donated to Kits for Kids and sent to children around the world. Each kit contains a message of encouragement from the troop. The troop decided to do this project after learning about the importance of taking care of themselves and others during the Brownie Quest Journey.

The girls also attended the First Ladies Luncheon in Denver on Oct. 12th, where they met the First Lady of Mozambique as well as Jeannie Ritter, Senate Representative Nancy Todd, and the founder of Project C.U.R.E., Dr. James W. Jackson. The girls were inspired to continue their service work to help children around the world.
