Girl Scout Troop completes project designed for breast cancer patients

GirlScouts

Girl Scout Troop 20556 of Belle Center completed their Silver Award Project Tuesday by delivering 38 Chemo Care Packages to the Crawfis Imaging Center. 

These care packages are a Thirty-one "Oh-Snap" bag containing a handmade Pink Ribbon bracelet and various items that may be needed by a chemotherapy patient.

The Girl Scout Silver Award requires a 50 hour project and is the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette can earn.

The Troop's project included: several hours of planning and decision making, a visit to the Imaging Center to learn about mammography and breast cancer, hand-making over 60 bracelets, meeting with a Thirty-one consultant, seeking out donors willing to sponsor a bag, collecting various donation items for the bags and stuffing them. The troop also assisted with set-up and survivor registration at this year's Logan County Relay for Life.

The Troop would like to thank everyone that sponsored a bag or donated items and a big thank you to Tracey Notestine, Senior Director with Thirty-One Gifts, for all of her assistance.
