Girl Scout Troop 50816 in Woodbury, Minnesota, worked all summer on a community project to help children affected by disasters. The outstanding result is the creation of “Fun Binz” that are filled with toys, games and activities that can be transported to a Red Cross emergency disaster shelter or used by Red Cross outreach when serving children.
The Girl Scouts presented the Fun Binz to the American Red Cross Twin Cities Area Chapter in mid-August. They toured the Red Cross offices and also had the opportunity to meet Northern Minnesota Region CEO Phil Hansen, Readiness Coordinator Ruth Talford, and Red Cross Volunteer Deb Nagurski, a long-standing disaster mental health relief worker who helped with this project. Many thanks to everyone!
