Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.
Ability Awareness and Inclusion Workshop was a Success!
Gold Award potential Elena from troop 8343, Silver Award potential Amanda from troop 8707 and eight Bronze Award potential Girl Scouts from troop 8373 joined together to host an Ability Awarness and Inclusion Workshop. 86 girls attended the Workshop and special guests included Pete and Connor his dog from Canine Companions International and Ellen from CP Wheelchairs for Humanity. The workshop received donations of Spanish books and art/school supplies to be divided between the school in Nicaragua and a local school for homeless children. In addition, six wheel chairs were donated to Wheelchairs for Humanity, a donation was given to Canine Companions and enough money was raised that for a school for disabled children in Honduras to install internet and pay for the service for the first six months. Thank you for all who participated!

Troop 8804 Bronze Award for Children with Hair Loss
From Troop 8804, Ellie, Lorna, Celeste, Eloise and Marisa completed their Girl Scout Bronze Award. They came up with an idea to help their community, brain stormed, came up with a plan, and implemented it! They had 20 people donate at least 8 inches of hair for Children with Hair Loss, and Tease Salon donated their salon and 6 stylists to make this event happen. Children with Hair Loss is a nonprofit organization that creates wigs for kids with medically related hair loss. This organization has never charged a child for a wig. They typically make enough wigs for approximately 300 children a year.
