COMMUNITY GIVING: West Seattle Girl Scout Troop 44398 donating craft kits to hospitalized kids

Girl Scout generosity and resourcefulness were on display at West Seattle (Admiral) Library Thursday afternoon. Troop 44398 members were putting together more than 200 craft kits to donate to kids who are getting care at Children’s Hospital, inspired by a desire to help after finding out that one troop member’s sister would be going there for brain-tumor treatment. Assembling the kits was an intense amount of work!

This was an all-West Seattle enterprise, as the kits to make polka-dot lanterns were from West Seattle-based Trendy Crafts, whose co-founder Julie Rasmussen says they “can be easily crafted from a hospital bed.”

    Great to see kids doing something and expecting nothing in return. Good for them.

    Thank you for doing this! Our daughter spent 6 months in the hospital battling AML Leukemia back in 2014. Arts and crafts were very helpful to fill in during the boring times of treatment. This is awesome!
