100th Anniversary Community Service Projects

Troops made a difference during our 100th Anniversary Community Service Projects!

In honor of the 100th Anniversary of Girl Scouting, Girl Scout troops from throughout council celebrated the spirit of service – one that has guided Girl Scouting from its very beginnings in 1912  – by taking up the challenge of completing Community Service Projects.

Whether it was participating in  the N.C. Big Sweep or volunteering with the local food bank,  Girl Scout Troops answered the call and accepted the challenge of 100 Service Projects for the 100th!

Here’s a highlight of some of the ways girls made an impact:

·         Girl Scout Troop #17, from Robeson County, recycled over 100 t-shirts into reusable bags

·         Girl Scout Troop #1075, from Wake County, created over 100 Easter Baskets for patients at Wake Med Children’s Hospital

·         Girl Scout Troop #923, from Pender County, wrote letters and cards for soldiers stationed overseas.

·         Girl Scout Troop #394, from Johnston County, created “I Care” kits for residents at a local nursing home.

In addition to the troops above, the following troops also completed a variety of the projects listed on the Service Projects Challenge List and made a huge impact in their local communities.
