Community Service: September 2008 Archives

One of our volunteers who has had breast cancer tells us that for her, being bald was one of the worst parts of having breast cancer.  Wigs are hot and cumbersome, scarves require a sense of style, but a baseball hat -- now that's easy!  

Troop 9469 is collecting new baseball caps for breast cancer patients as part of October Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Drop them off at the Girl Scout Council in both Montgomery and Mobile during the month of October.

Thank you for your help!

joy_to_life_logo-092408.gifThe Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama will be joining forces with the Joy to Life Foundation to promote breast cancer awareness month in honor of their founder, Juliette Low, who died of breast cancer in 1927. They will be encouraging the communities in each of their 30 counties to get the FREE Joy to Life car tag by October 31, which will be available at the Council Offices in Montgomery and Mobile.

Power of Attorney forms  to order your car tag will also be available at the Council offices in both Montgomery and Mobile. The Joy to Life Foundation will donate $1 to Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama for every form completed.
