Girl Scout Troop 1140 Going for Bronze

Fifth grade Girl Scout Troop 1140 from Mahopac is working towards their Bronze Award this year. The Bronze Award is the highest award that a Junior Girl Scout can earn. The Bronze Award Project is a team effort by a group of Juniors, usually from a single troop.  The project's objective must be to benefit the local community and/or benefit Girl Scouting as a whole in some way.  Each scout is expected to contribute 20 hours to the project.  The project is to be girl-led, but, unlike the Silver and Gold Awards, adults may be on-hand to assist and guide.

The ten girls of this troop will be working to assemble Bedtime Bags for shelter and foster children. The bags will consist of a throw blanket, a small stuffed animal, crayons and coloring books or a journal with a fun pen and cozy socks. The troop is hoping that this will help with some initial fears when going to a new place. The bags will be donated between the Child Advocacy Center Putnam County and the Putnam/Northern Westchester Women's Resource Center. They are hoping to make a total of 50 bags.

Troop 1140 will be collecting new throw blankets and a cozy socks at the Mahopac SEPTO Cookies with Santa event Lakeview Elementary School on Friday, December 7th from 6:00-8:00pm. We will also be collecting at the annual Girl Scout Holiday Fair on Saturday, December 1st at the Mahopac Middle School from 11am-2pm. Both events are open to the public!
