Members of Junior Girl Scout Troop 17259 in Katy have kept busy during the 2010-2011 school year. From earning their Bronze Award to delivering Girl Scouts cookies to local hospitals, these Junior Girl Scouts have served their community well.
In October, Troop 17259 held a Pet Blessing at Living Word Lutheran Church in Katy to collect donations for the SPCA. The girls took a tour of the facility, made fleece blankets and made treats for the pets – both of which were donated to the SPCA. Troop members also wrote thank you notes to SPCA volunteers and hand-delivered them with Girl Scouts cookies. These service projects earned the troop the Bronze Award, the highest award a Junior Girl Scout can receive.
In addition, Troop 17259 also participated in Cookie Share Donations and donated 150 boxes to Texas Children’s Hospital’s West Campus. During the cookie sale, troop members collected donations for the hospital.
