Girls from Troop 2569 in Westminster earned their Bronze Award by making toys for animals in local adoption shelters. They also donated extra materials gathered for their projects. They made tug of war toys for dogs at the Boulder Humane Society which we delivered to our local PetSmart. The made happy socks for cats in a local adoption shelter called Almost Home for Cats. Lastly, they made toys for bunnies at the Colorado House Rabbit Society, which some of the girls learned about through a Take Action project last year for one of their Journeys.

Kids Against Hunger

Junior girls from Troop 2569 in Westminster packaged food to help feed children in places like Haiti, Uganda, South Africa and Syria. We started doing this about three years ago and every year the girls continue to want to go and give back. They love doing it so much that they don’t even realize that they are there for 2 hours. If you would like to learn how you can help please go to www.wefeedfamilies.org. It says that they are in Erie, but their packing facility is moving to the Westminster/Broomfield area very soon.

When the girls were 2nd & 3rd grade Brownie Girl Scouts they worked on the cooking Try-It badges and served the meals to the members of the American Legion hall that we are sponsored by. With the money we raised through these dinner events the girls were able to buy the legion hall an AED machine. The machine was delivered to the legion hall in May 2012 and we finally had training in October 2012. All girls in the troop received free training for CPR and how to use an AED. The girls continue to do cooking events for the legion hall to connect with the members and work on more cooking badge work.
