Troop Spotlight: January 2021

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.

Goodie bags and holiday cheer

Girl Scout Troop 30393 in Milton, Vermont, (5th and 6th graders) decided that this year’s service project is to give back to their community. Leader Heather Preuss said the girls planned a series of seasonal "goodie bags" for seniors at a local retirement complex. They used scrapbooking skills to make cards for each bag, and worked by Zoom to finish the bags and make ornaments. The bags were delivered to Elm Place for holiday smiles!

Generous donations

Girl Scout Troop 30108 of Jericho, Vermont, decided to earn their Your Voice, Your World Journey by gathering donations for the Spectrum Youth Center. In just a few days, they had snacks, drinks, towels, long underwear, gift cards, and more. Everything was dropped off in a contactless manner. Everything was delivered to Spectrum just before Christmas. Co-leaders Sharon and Sarah said, “What joy it brought to all our hearts to be able to donate these items before the holidays! We are very proud of our girls!

Pelham Girl Scouts help others during pandemic

Girl Scout Troop 58461 in Pelham, NH, had a busy holiday season. This multi-level Brownie/Junior troop found a new way to give back to their community when the pandemic forced the cancellations of their traditional food prep for Thanksgiviing with Hudson Fish & Game.

Instead, they collected toys for Toys for Tots. On December 15, the troop went to the regional drop-off spot at the Pelham Fire Station, donating 163 toys and more than $450 in cash. They look forward to doing this again next year!

Tie-dyed masks

Girl Scout Troop 30228 of Waterbury VT, tie dyed over 50 face masks and donated them to Lamoille Home Health and Hospice in Morrisville. The girls were happy to help and brighten the day of those who used the masks.

Hooksett Girl Scouts aid animals

Girl Scouts in Troop 51670 in Hooksett, NH, have hosted a drive to help the Manchester Animal Shelter for the past five years. They not only gathered lots of food, they made toys for the cats there. Leader Alicia Grant said she is very proud to have such community-minded Girl Scouts!
