2018 KD Kick the Year off with Service
KD alum donated and participated in our KD "Kick the Year Off With Service" program with the Brownies and Juniors from Girl Scout Troop 1674 at Custer Road United Methodist Church in Plano. Donated toys and toiletry items were collected to create Valentine's day bags for Family Compass.
What a fun evening! A fun icebreaker of "who am I" combined with finding your pairing started us off. A quick sorting of toiletry items and the Girl Scouts were quickly assembling the goody bags. Photo ops and socializing were plenty for all involved. KDs got a chance to buy some tasty Girl Scout cookies too!
Girl Scout Troop leaders – Michelle, Laura and Heather – loved this activity! It was something new for the girls. It was service-oriented and fostered teamwork. The leaders have invited us (RPKDAC) to partner with them for this goody bag event next year.
In addition, the Brownies and Juniors received their Kappa Delta Girl Scout patch last night with the other badges that they had earned during the quarter. The following afternoon, Sarita, our VP of Community Service will deliver 75 goody bags (for 30 kids, 5 babies, 40 ladies) to Family Compass.
A special thank-you to Sarita, Shawna, Molly, and Jen for their various roles in the planning, coordination and promotion of this event! And, of course, kudos to you for your generous giving and support for Kappa Delta philanthropies and the Girl Scouts!
Come join us to mingle with good friends and enjoy good cheer!
