Troop Community Service Project & Silver Trefoil Hours Alert with CAIR

Asalaamu Alaikum


2-in-1 shampoo and conditionerThis month our troop is working with our Girl Scout Service Unit to collect at least 800 full-sized bottles of 2-in-1 combined shampoo and conditioner as a part of the annual Purse Drive sponsored by My Girlfriend’s House in Capitol Heights, Maryland. Each donated purse is stuffed with dental care, feminine care, nail care and hair care products. Purses are then dispersed to 20-25 area shelters, group homes and foster care agencies throughout the DC, VA and MD regions.

Our troop goal is for every girl scout to donate four (4) full-size bottles of 2-in-1 shampoo/conditioner. Girls who donate five (5) bottles will earn one service hour for Silver Trefoil or county-required community service.

Let’s make this a race to do good deeds! Will the Daisies, Brownies, Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors or Ambassadors donate the most bottles? Remember to reach out to family, friends and schoolmates to help make a difference in the lives of homeless women and girls in our area. Girls should bring their 2-in-1 shampoo/conditioner donations to the troop meetings on October 9 and 23 inshaAllah.


CAIR is looking for volunteers for their 21st Anniversary Banquet on Saturday, October 17, 2015. The event will take place at the Marriott Crystal Gateway Hotel (1700 Jefferson Davis Highway, Arlington VA 22202), where the program will take place from 5:30 – 10PM. Volunteers are needed during the hours of 3:30 – 10:30PM for set-up, registration, ushering, donation collection, clean-up, event photographer. (There are also some paid positions for babysitters the night of the event.) This year, there will be two online orientation webinars before the event to walk through the details; volunteers must plan to attend one. Volunteers get free entry to the banquet, an awesome meal, and will likely be able to see some of the program as well. Contact Lauren Schreiber immediately at lschreiber [at] cair [dot] com, including what particular role(s) you’re most excited about.
