Troop 40755 needs your help!
What for? - Troop 40755 is looking to earn their silver award, which is the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette can earn.
What we did- We toured a retirement home that had this little store in it where the people living there could go down with their bingo money and go shopping for some candy, blankets, stuffed animal and much more. While we were, we realized that some of the other retirement homes didn’t have a store like that. That is where we came up with the idea that we are going to create different trinkets to stock up a store so the other retirement home residents can go with their bingo money and buy little things.
Why do we need your help?- We need your help for us to complete our silver award. We have already created some of the different trinkets in our little corner store but we might not always have time to stock it.
So we need your help in creating some of the different trinkets below or even collecting some of the things below to help stock the store. So the store can be up and running for a long time.
