Operation Pillowcase Dresses
This year as a major service project, the girls in Service Unit 46 made 28 pillowcase dresses for donation to refugees in Liberia. Together Troops 1853, 1852, 1273, 1855, 115, 1819, 820, 2004, and 1855 embarked on this project that was spearheaded by Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia as a World Thinking Day project.
In the first shipment of dresses Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia exceeded their goal of 1,000 dresses. The dresses that SU 24 made will be a part of the second shipment that is being collected until August. While working on this project girls learned “about how some of the girls in Liberia lived and were very happy to send something to hopefully brighten their lives,” said Troop 1853 leader, Terri.
Many of the Troops that participated earned the Girl Scouts Global Action Award; Troop 1853earned their World Community Outreach Badges and Girl Scout Karina did the project as part of the Mission Sisterhood Journey.
Way to go girls!
