Scouts help out where needed with a gift of warmth

Since 1947, the Girl Scouts’ mission has been to be prepared, and they explain that as being ready to help out wherever needed.

Today, that mission lives on in the fourth and fifth grade Scouts at Wilson School/WSTEM Elementary School in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. They came together for a service project to create tied fleece blankets for patients at Rogers Behavioral Health. Cutting and tying together pieces of colorful fleece, these 17 young Girl Scouts learned a little about what Rogers offers to patients in our community and why these blankets make a difference, shared Jenna Antczak, one of the leaders involved in the service project.

The soft, inviting blankets are given to patients across a number of departments, providing comfort and warmth for those who are struggling. Thank you, Wilson/WSTEM Elementary for sharing your creativity and kindness with Rogers’ patients!
