Troop 3573 helps Alzheimer’s patients for Bronze Award project


Submitted by Kristin Coulter Denver

Girl Scout Troop 3573 chose to help Alzheimer’s patients as their Bronze Award project. Several of the girls had personal experiences with family members with the disease. The girls had planned to make scrapbooks for the residents of the Alzheimer’s center but when they visited the center they noticed that the patients were cold. Even though the center was quite warm the residents were wearing sweaters and coats. Older people can feel cold easily. They often have little body fat or take medications that can lower their body temperature. The girls worked together to make 35 fleece blankets for the patients. They visited the center as often as they could. They also brought cookies, sang songs and made friends. They were able to complete this project through teamwork, using their cookie money and donations. Thank you to everyone who supported them on their journey to make the world a better place!
