Building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place

From the Girl Scouts of Connecticut Website:

shottingAs more details have emerged about the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Girl Scouts of Connecticut is saddened to learn that eight Girl Scout Daisies and sons of two Girl Scout families have died as a result of the shootings. We are devastated by these losses and will keep the families in our hearts.

Many sister Girl Scouts have asked what they can do to help. Currently, Girl Scouts of Connecticut is planning a memorial service with the Newtown Service Unit in mid-January. At that time, we will be presenting thoughts, prayers, and well-wishes on trefoil art. If you or any of your troops would like to participate, please send these trefoils to our Hartford Service Center, c/o Trefoil Project, 340 Washington St., Hartford, CT 06106.

Further down the road, we are considering constructing a memorial at a local Girl Scout camp in honor of our lost ones. Please continue to check our website and Facebook page for updates as to how you can help support these efforts.
