On May 15th 2012, 10 Girl Scouts and five moms flew from Crested Butte, Colorado to Savannah, Georgia to celebrate 100 years of Girl Scouting. Along with celebrating Girl Scouting by visiting the Juliette Low Birthplace, the girls also wanted to do something for the Savannah community.

The girls chose Greenbriar Children’s Center as well as The Magdalene Women and Children’s shelter. The girls made 30 care packages for these organizations by using their money to buy supplies, made fleece blankets and asked local businesses for donations.

The girls also visited WW Law Learning Center and did an art project with the children as well as gave books. After three amazing days filled with great adventures, the girls favorite part was the time spent with the pre-school children. The group went to the beach, a dolphin tour, a candy tour, visited the Juliette Gordon Low house, yet they loved the time spent with the children the best. The girls learned how wonderful it is to give, not just with the children they spent time with but also the children that will receive their care packages. The girls earned patches for many of their activities in Savannah. What the girls learned from giving will always be with them and the love they felt from the preschool children is really the best gift they could receive.
