Arvada girls deliver handmade comfort items, toys to area hospitals for Silver


Submitted by Irene Zerr


The four Cadettes of Girl Scout Troop 53124 spent their time gathering and making items for four local hospitals. They made and delivered 100 fleece blankets, 78 heart shaped pillows, and approximately 150 activity kits that they got from the my kid needs that website. They collected donations of diapers, wipes, games, puzzles, toys, and other baby items to give to these hospitals. It took 22 months and 400 hours of time to complete their Silver Project valued at $3,537. One volunteer told them they had delivered 202 miles of smiles. All four girls felt a great sense of satisfaction and joy when they delivered the items to the hospitals. They were surprised by how a seemingly small act of kindness made so many people so happy. Way to go, girls!
