EDH Girl Scouts donate bags to Shriners

By From page A4 | November 27, 2013

Girl Scout troop 1879 assembled and delivered more than 200 waiting room bags filled with coloring books, notepads, crayons, colored pencils and stickers for young patients at Shriners Hospital earlier this month.

Each waiting room bag is filled with items to keep 2- to 16-year-olds busy, said co-leader Julie Cummings. At the start of the school year the El Dorado Hills fifth graders, a troop since first grade, chose the project because two of their families had children who’d been past patients at the hospital for children.

The troop held a donation drive at Oak Meadow Elementary last month where they collected the items, as well as $150 in spare change used to purchase the bags. The community service project marked the completion of the troop’s Agent of Change Journey, which counts towards the highest award a Junior Girl Scout can achieve — the Bronze Award.
