Girl Scout Troop 40033 worked hard on their Bronze Award Project, to donate kits to patients at Prairie Lakes Cancer Center. 

The Girl Scouts came up with the idea on their own when asked how they could give back to their community. They made posters to raise money to buy the supplies for the kits and donated money they had made selling nuts and cookies to make the blankets. They had enough money to put together 24 kits and 15 blankets! The kits consist of a variety of items including: Fuzzy socks, a Hat, Water bottle, Journal, Cross word puzzle book, Pens, Kleenex, Lemon drops, Lotion, Hand sanitizer and Chap stick.
