Using proceeds from their cookie seasons, Girl Scouts of Hawaiʻi Troops 823 and 988 of Kaua‘i purchased backpacks and school supplies to provide children on Kaua‘i with the supplies necessary to succeed in school.
Troop 823 sponsored children through the Backpack Brigade Kaua‘i project, an initiative to sponsor children on Kaua‘i and provide them with a brand new backpack filled with donated school supplies.
Troop 988 put together backpacks for the Kaua‘i Economic Opportunity’s Homeless Program. They donated their backpacks to the children of families in transition from the shelter to a new home.
The service projects of Troops 823 and 988 are perfect examples of the Girl Scouts mission to build girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place.
Supporting almost 5,000 girl and adult members statewide, the Girl Scouts of Hawaiʻi builds girls of courage, confidence and character to make the world a better place.
