Girl Scouts of Central Texas Bryan/College Station Service Unit
Serving girls in the Brazos Valley
BLANKET MAKER BADGE
Giving blankets to hospitalized
for Kids is a project that was started by local middle schooler and Girl Scout
Elise S. to teach people how to make fleece tied-blankets for hospitalized
children, who may not have an object to comfort them while they are sick.
Recently, she did several presentations for young Girl Scouts about why the
children need the blankets, and how to make them. After that, they helped tie
blankets, all of which went to the children at the College Station Medical
Center after being washed with hypoallergenic detergent and placed in
containers to keep the blankets clean and dustfree.
You and your troop can earn the Blanket Maker Badge and participate in this great service project!
