Cards, Cards, Cards

On Saturday, November 15, over 60 Girl Scouts were busy cutting, gluing and stamping to make thank you cards, birth announcements and other greeting cards as part of a community service project. These cards will be donated to veterans and other members of the community during the holiday season as a reminder that they are appreciated and remembered.

Demonstrators from Stampin’ Up, a home-based creative products business, helped girls design and put together the cards. Two groups of girls worked on making birth announcements that will be donated to new mothers through Children’s Health Investment Program. Another group of girls made patriotic-themed thank you cards for veterans. Girls also made greeting cards to be donated with a special message to brighten the day of residents at a local assisted living facility.

This holiday season, Girl Scouts from across the region will be participating in projects to improve the community. From hosting food drives to tending to gardens at local schools and churches, Girl Scouts are committed to taking action to make the world a better place.
