Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada - Junior Troop 911
Turns Local Community Project into National Girl Scout Movement.
Las Vegas, NV.
Each year, hundreds of Kids become involved in traumatic events, from car accidents to sudden illnesses and injuries of themselves and families. Emergency care providers struggle to calm and reassure kids in these very difficult situations. One of the strategies that is proven to work well with younger children has been the care provider providing a small stuffed animal the child can use as a buddy in the scary time.
Girl Scout Junior Troop 911 in Las Vegas, NV. has made collecting and delivering donated teddy bears and other stuffed animals their “Give Back” community project since they were Daisies. Now, the girls have taken the annual project to the next level, as their Bronze Award Project. The girls have created a National event, and enlisted troops from several states to participate in “Operation Teddy Drop, 2015”. Girl Scout Troops in several states will simultaneously deliver the donated bears and other stuffed animals they have collected. The event will occur near the winter holidays. Participating troops have selected their receiving services, and are collecting bears now.
Troop 911 will have a collection point at 2015 SNORE “Rage at the River” in Laughlin, NV. Collection Bins will be available at the Drivers Meeting and at the Fire – Safety Trailer located in the main Pits both race Days. If you would like to donate, the girls are taking new and gently used stuffed animals. Additionally, you can donate cash or via debit or credit card at this location, and funds will be used to purchase additional bears.
Girl scout Troop 911 is a smaller troop located in the Centennial Hills Service Unit of the Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada Area Council. The troop is primarily families of public servants, and Junior level Girl Scouts are fourth and fifth graders. Girl scouts uses the principal of Discovery, Connect and Take Action to give girls life long skills in confidence and leadership. Your support of Girl Scouting at the troop level directly aids in continuing this mission.
