Troop 362 has participated in a national project called Birthday in a Bag. This project is a way of showing that our Girl Scouts care and Girl Scouting is an important part of our community. It is also a wonderful tribute to Juliette Low, founder of Girl Scouting, during the 100th year anniversary.
Our troop went shopping for items for our bags, packaged them, then delivered 15 of them to New Beginnings for Women and Children, where they were rewarded with a tour of the administrative buildings and given valuable information about the programs they offer. What a great learning experience!
WHAT IS A BIRTHDAY-IN-A-BAG? A Birthday-in-a-Bag is a self-contained gift bag with everything you need to have a Happy Birthday party. Every person needs some recognition of their birthday. However certain circumstances occur that might not make that possible. A Birthday-in-a-Bag can make a birthday more special.
