TROOPS AND SERVICE UNITS NEEDED - 

ACTIVITIES, GAMES, CRAFTS

Girl Scout Service Units and/or Troops are needed to share an activity, game, or craft. Together, let's teach Girl Scouts and their families about the food of our area, known as America's Bread Basket. Let's create fun educational activities about food safety, nutrition and how local farmers bring the foods that we enjoy to our tables. Set up begins at 5:00pm and tear down is at 8:30pm. No electricity is accessible. Troops/Service Units who host booths will receive TWO FREE TICKTETS AND DINNER which includes a hot dog, chips, and a beverage. Contact Missy Hinojosa 800-490-8653 X 120.

Troop Opportunities

 

KABOOM GRANT
A variety of Kaboom grants are available to individuals and communities to create or improve a playspace in their neighborhood. Spruce grants of $750 each will be awarded to communities who wish to make their existing playgrounds cleaner, safer, and more inviting.  The grants are designed to reward communities that have recently maintained and "spruced" their playspaces.  This is a great opportunity for Girl Scouts to get together with members of the community and "spruce" up any local playgrounds!  For more information see grants@kaboom.org
