Daisy troop 43534 (1st Grade) Helping our neighbors
We are a first grade troop and one of our fellow classmates mother died of cancer a few months ago. This family has extended family in the area who have been stepping up to provide childcare, meals and support to this family but were left strapped and juggling two households while grieving. One of the goals of the Journey is learning how to care for ourselves and animals. We identified some needs for girls such as bathing, eating healthy and keeping your home clean. The girls decided to do chores in their home for extra money and over the Holidays they earned over $600. This, matched by a generous donation from Royalty Cleaning of 10 free cleans made it possible to provide this family with bi-weekly cleaning for their house for 9 months. It just goes to show what girls can do when they put their minds and muscles to work for good. A shout out to the Royalty Cleaning Service for their generous support of this cause.
Daisy Troop 43537 (1st Grade) The Scratching Post collection
Our Leader contacted The Scratching Post (a no kill cat shelter and adoption center) and asked them for a wish list of items they needed for the shelter. We collected items for two months and used part of our Cookie Money to buy additional items for the shelter. As a troop we all took them items to the shelter and they gave us a tour of the facility and let us play with the cats. The girls had a great time and the shelter was very appreciative for the help. We collected over $200 in items for the shelter.
