Braintree Girl Scouts Volunteer for the Holidays
Share your holiday events and photos on Braintree Patch.
In November, Brownie Troop #74555 and Junior Troop #73418 created centerpieces for the annual Thanksgiving dinner for Father Bill's Place.
For nearly 20 years, FBMS has hosted a Thanksgiving community dinner at the Christ Episcopal Church, Quincy, providing a complimentary meal to individuals and families in need. Volunteers and Father Bill’s Place staff served 160 meals Thanksgiving morning this year and the Braintree Girl Scout Troop #73418 & 74555 provided homemade centerpieces with positive messages of giving thanks for the tables.
In December, each troop sponsored a child through the DeVanna center and using a total of $250 of their earnings from selling cookies last year donated a variety of gifts on 2 girls' wish lists.
In addition, the troop got together and sang Christmas carols to the seniors at the Sunrise Center in Braintree. They also gave them homemade cards, candle votives, and baked goods. The seniors sang along with the girls and everyone had a great time. The girls also posed for a picture with a former girl scout leader, Mary Cyr, at Sunrise.
