BRANCHBURG SERVICE UNIT 73
Service Unit Projects
  • In memory of our sisters who lost their lives last Saturday, Wisconsin Girl Scouts are encouraged to take action in their community during the month of November.The Wisconsin Girl Scout Alliance, comprised of Wisconsin Girl Scout councils, invites Girl Scouts across the state to perform service projects in their community in honor of Haylee, Jayna, Autumn and Sara Jo, who passed away while giving service on Saturday, November 3. By doing what Girl Scouts do best, we'll be honoring their legacy in lasting and meaningful ways.

    HOW IT WORKS:

    Troops, individual Girl Scouts, service units and membership areas will determine and coordinate a service project that will work best for them. By performing service projects locally, Girl Scouts will be spreading the impact of the important work we do, in the communities we each call home.

    Share your service projects and photos of your impact on the Discussion tab of this event page. In December, the Wisconsin Alliance will share photos and highlights with our Girl Scout sisters in the Northwestern Great Lakes Council in show of our support.

    NOTE: If your Girl Scouts cannot get together this month, please know that ANY DAY of service is the right day to do a good deed in tribute to our sisters.

  • Volunteers Needed for Fall Leaf Clean up for the elderly and disabled persons in Somerset County

    For information and to sign up as a volunteer, Contact Somerset County Office of Volunteer Services 908-541-5715

  • Hello all,
     
    We’ll be collecting lap blankets for the veterans at the VA Lyons Hospital again this year. All blankets will be delivered by Operation S.T.A.T. (Standing Tall for American Troops) for Christmas. This would be a great service project for the month of November as we celebrate Veteran’s Day. Showing you care will make veterans feel appreciated and will improve their morale. In addition, fleece is easy to work with, it is durable and soft, and will certainly improve the quality of life of those in need.
     
    Lap blanket size for wheelchairs is about 30” X 42”. You will need approximately 1 yard of the material of each (print and solid) depending on the width of the fabric bolt. You can check the link below for instructions with pictures.
     
    Your troop can also make thank you cards. I’m attaching a few samples for your convenience.
     
    The deadline for us to have all the blankets/cards is Tuesday, November 27th. Let me know if your troop would like to participate in this project and we’ll set up a date for pick up.
     
    More information about Operation S.T.A.T. can be found at https://www.facebook.com/operationstatnj/
     
    Thanks in advance for your help!
