Brighton Girl Scout Troop 50458 Hosted
Harpers Ferry Service Unit
Christmas Party & Toy Drive
With the Jolly ole’ man, Santa.
Troop 50458, a combination of Cadettes and Senior Girl Scouts, had seen a need to help out children during Christmas. The thought that many kids during Christmas would not wake up with a present under the tree, the girls wanted to make sure they could help out as many as they can, so why not ask our fellow Girl Scout Sisters to help out. So that is what they did. They contacted the City Of Brighton to help these kids in need. Came up the idea that they could host a Christmas Party and ask everyone who attended to bring an unwrapped toy for children of the ages 8-13 years of age for both girls and boys.
Each Girl Scout enjoyed playing a life size game of, Girl Scout Cookie Land, a remake of the famous Candy Land. Two crafts, “God’s eye” and snowflakes that were made with recycled paper.
At the end of the night, 180 Girl Scouts and family member attended the event with 220 toys donated to the City Of Brighton. On February 5, 2013 the Troop was given “Certificate Of Appreciation” by the City of Brighton for their willingness to help out The Brighton Employee Charities Committee for helping those in our community.
