COLLECTION FOR TREE HOUSE HUMANE SOCIETY

Help Saint Tarcissus Cadet Girl Scout Troop #21734 collect supplies for the cats/kittens of Tree House Humane Society!

Tree House is a humane organization that promotes the inherent value of every animal and strives to educate the public about proper animal care and responsibility. Tree House houses over 200 cats who depend on donors like us to help provide needed supplies to live healthy lives and eventually reach their forever homes. The girls will be hand delivering donations and volunteering a day of service with the cats.

The collection is held now thru November 20 where you may place items in the boxes in the back of church or in the school office. Thank you for helping animals in need!

The Girl Scouts of Chicago are part of the largest all-girl organization in the world. It is open to girls from ages 5 to 17. The mission of the Girl Scouts is to help girls develop to their fullest potential and to become competent, resourceful women. It enables them to acquire the skills and talents to overcome barriers that limit girls’ achievements. The program produces skills for good citizenship, positive self-image, leadership, decision making and resourcefulness. The girls also learn to give service to others.

Girl Scout activities include: learning about the arts, such as music, crafts, drama, drawing, painting; learning about the outdoors, such as camping, hiking, outdoor cooking, becoming lovers of nature; learning about sciences such as computers, math, science; learning about other people and their own heritage; learning about their own well-being and other activities such as exercising, first aid, games, cooking and sports.

We have six troops which meet bi-monthly. Daisies are kindergartners and first graders, Brownies are second and third graders, Juniors are fourth through sixth graders, Cadettes are seventh through ninth graders, and Seniors are ninth through twelfth graders.

A new program, called Studio 2B, is available for ages 11 through 17. The seniors work to achieve the highest award in Girl Scouts, the Gold Award.

Feel free to call with questions or concerns!
