Connecticut Council Creates Fund in Honor of Girl Scouts Who Died at Sandy Hook Elementary

Girl Scouts of Connecticut has set up a fund in honor of the Girl Scouts who died during last week's school shooting, and the fund will assist girls in attending Girl Scout summer camp. If you would like to give, please visit www.gsofct.org, and on the online giving form linked from the site, indicate “Sandy Hook Girl Scout Campership Fund” in the “What is this gift for?” box. See here for instructions.

In addition, Girl Scouts from across the country are encouraged to write thoughts and prayers, or to create art in the shape of the Girl Scout trefoil, and send them to Girl Scouts of Connecticut Hartford Service Center, c/o Trefoil Project, 340 Washington St. Hartford, CT 06106. In mid-January, the council will present them to the Newtown Service Unit during a memorial service.
