GSHPA Mission Moments


  • The girls of Troop 20078 of York County are saving up to go to the G.I.R.L. 2020 Conference in Orlando, Florida!
  • One of GSHPA's own Girl Scouts was recently featured on the new series: Marvel's Hero Project! Born with a heart condition, Lorelei has spent many days in the hospital prepping and recovering from surgeries. After one of those procedures, she received a heart hug pillow. It brought her much comfort, and she decided to start making her own heart hug pillows for children struggling with cardiac illnesses like her. Since then, Lorelei has sent over 50,000 pillows to critically ill kids and raised over $150,000. Catch more of her amazing story by watching her episode on Disney+ or reading her comic


  • People across the globe have watched the tragic aftermath of the bushfires that raged in Australia over the past weeks. GSHPA Girl Scouts from Troops 71450 and 60082 took action by sewing animal pouches and bat wraps for animal rescue centers. Not only did these girls take their commitment to service global, they brushed up on their sewing skills to! 

  • Service Unit Lead Mandi Budman was presented with the Volunteer Appreciation Pin by Girl Scout Belinda Stefl and GSHPA Board Member Kathy McCorkle for going above and beyond the expectations for the troop and exhibiting exemplary service


  • Girl Scout Juliette Mariska of Luzerne County honored service men and women—fallen, active, and veteran—by laying wreaths in partnership with Wreaths Across America at the Sunnyside Cemetery in Tunkhannock, Pa.
  • Girls from Troop 60089 were recently presented with the Montour Area Recreation (MARC) award for "Volunteer Organization of the Year"! Each member of the troop dedicated approximately 20 hours of their time this past summer to painting picnic tables, cleaning picnic areas, and building benches and turtle basking platforms at Montour Preserve. What an honor!
