Girl Scouts Give to HSP!

By: Kristen Lindholm, Intern

HSP received an enormous donation of arts & crafts supplies from the Girl Scout troops at Prairie Elementary School this morning! Mother Patty Komar along with her eight year-old daughters Jessica and Caitlyn gathered the supplies from 15 Girl Scout troops at Prairie Elementary School and delivered them to us this morning. A trunk full of supplies for our arts & crafts kits await the children in the Children's Birthday Project!

Girl Scouts Thinking Day began in 1926 and happens each February. The theme for 2010 World Thinking Day is "girls worldwide say 'together we can end extreme poverty and hunger.'" Patty said, "the Prairie Elementary School Girl Scout troops decided on the Humanitarian Service Project, and more specifically, collecting the arts & crafts supplies for the Children's Birthday Project. We thought the girls could relate to idea that other children their age don't get to enjoy arts & crafts. It was something they could really get behind and understand.

Because of the generosity of these Girl Scouts and their efforts focused for World Thinking Day 2010, children in the Children's Birthday Project will experience the joys of making art and have colorful birthdays!
