West Seattle holidays: Local Girl Scouts’ gathering, giving

‘Tis the season to give. That’s what two local Girl Scout troops have done in recent days; their leaders shared this report and photos:

Sunday evening, we held our 4th Annual West Seattle Girl Scout Christmas Cookie Exchange. It was a wonderful success! 23 Junior Scouts (5th Graders from Troop #40890 and #40699) hosted 60 Brownie Scouts (2nd/3rd Graders) at this event.

The Scouts celebrated Christmas by singing songs, enjoying Christmas treats, and exchanging Christmas Cookies. The Junior Scouts mentored the younger Scouts in practicing several Girl Scout traditions.

While having all this fun, they also thought about our homeless neighbors in downtown Seattle who go to the UNION GOSPEL MISSION for food, shelter and supplies.

On Monday, we delivered 83 dozen cookies and 60 handmade Christmas cards to the Union Gospel Mission.

The Girl Scouts also donated a trunk-load of much needed toiletries which will be delivered to the Union Gospel Mission this week.

These Girl Scouts had a wonderful time celebrating together and spreading some Christmas cheer to our neighbors at the UNION GOSPEL MISSION.

Happy Holidays!

Rosina Geary, Troop Leader #40890
Deyette Swegle, Troop Leader #40699

Even if you’re not involved with organized giving like this, there are plenty of opportunities on the list that is part of the WSB West Seattle Holiday Events/Info Guide – just scroll through (and keep checking back – we’re adding more daily)!

    “to help other people at all times” is part of the Girl Scout promise I made in the 1960’s.

    Congrats to both troops for carrying on the tradition!
