BRINGING JOY TO THE FRONT LINES
As we continue to see our world impacted by the spread of novel virus COVID-19, our local Girl Scouts have stepped up to bring some joy to the front lines. Girls across our footprint have asked their communities to make cookie donations to medical, first responder, trucking, custodial, and other essential workers to show appreciation for their hard work and dedication during these challenging times.
GIRL SCOUTS LEARN TO CARE FOR COMMUNITY
Friendly Valley Girl Scouts from Cadette Troops 70569 and 70525 in Brownstown spent Valentines’ Day at WellSpan Cocalico Health Center earning their Baby Sitter and First Aid Badges by participating in WellSpan’s Safe Sitter program. The girls learned how to safely care for children from birth through the early school years, as well as basic CPR, First Aid, how to administer an Epipen, and how to be business smart when running their own babysitting business. Sounds like they really made the most of the holiday!
GIRL SCOUTS MAKE THEIR MARK
Lackwanna County troops offered the Outdoor Journey-in-a-Day at Camp Archbald to 102 Cadette, Senior, and Ambassador Girl Scouts. The troops taught fire building, outdoor cooking, emergency shelter building, backpack packing, archery, kayaking, first aid, and Leave No Trace principles. All attendees then took part in painting a Leave No Trace mural in Nivert Pavilion as part of their Take Action Project! We love seeing their hard work at Camp Archbald!
