Weekly Troop Spotlight: December 20, 2019

Troop Spotlight Header

Girl Scouts around our council are always active – camping, traveling, doing service projects, and making the world a better place. Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains invites all Girl Scouts in our council to share photos of their adventures, achievements, projects, and more. Send your photos to us at Be sure to include a description of the event, your troop number and levels involved, when it took place, and any other relevant information.

Giving at Thanksgiving

Girl Scouts from Troops 10720 and 10417 and others helped fill and organize 175 Thanksgiving baskets at Brookside Church in Manchester, NH. Girl Scouts at Brookside Church help with this every year, along with Sandie Roy and Deb Rossi. A family at First United Methodist Church helps run this event and the Girl Scouts help complete it. A month or so before Thanksgiving they start collecting food and gift certificates (stuffing, canned veggies, cranberry sauce, potatoes, carrots, juice, rice, cereal, gravy, brownie mix and of course each family also gets a turkey) The girls at Brookside Church put together a craft for each box, also.

Savvy shoppers

Girl Scout Junior Troop 10731 from Merrimack, NH, used a portion of their Fall Product proceeds to purchase items from a giving tree tag while earning their Savvy Shopper badge at Target.

Stuffing buses and making blankets

Troop 52027, a multi-level troop in North Clarendon, VT, has been hard at working giving back to their community! Troop Leader Melissa Peer shared this photo of their “stuff a bus” event, where they brought nonperishable food item donations. Troop Leader Jessica Utter also shared the photo of the girls with the fleece blankets they made for a local nursing home they planned to visit. The Girl Scouts have been collecting food for a local foodbank, and helped their school guidance counselor collect and fill backpacks for peers in need.

Bat boxes and tie dye in Winooski

Daisy and Brownie Troop 58806 in Winooski, VT, completed the It's Your World Change It journey with a Take Action project. Their project was to build and paint bat boxes as well as create educational posters about why bats are crucial to our ecosystem. Brownie and Junior Troop 52013 and Junior, Cadette and Senior Troop 30948 have been working on tie dye techniques. They used Sharpies to create patterns on a handkerchief and then drops of rubbing alcohol to blur the colors together. They also bagged some candy as a thank you gift to Meals on Wheels volunteers for Halloween.
