On Saturday, December 14th, for the 16th year in a row, Girl Scouts from the Vestavia area came to Glenwood’s main campus to deliver presents and spend time with the individuals that we serve. All the troops are from Girl Scout Service Unit 262 in Vestavia Hills. They had parties at three different locations on campus, and they served cookies and refreshments at each party. Santa even made an appearance and helped hand out gifts and candy canes!
At one of the parties we had 6 troops of Daisies, Brownies, and Juniors in the chapel with the adults. They sang Christmas Carols and helped Santa hand out gift bags and candy canes.
In the cafeteria, we had 1 troop of Cadettes spending time with our CRS individuals. They helped by handing out gifts and passing out refreshments. The girls were amazing with the kids, and everyone was excited when Santa came with his gifts too!
We had 3 troops of Brownies and Juniors in the gym with the Daniel Houses. They had multiple games set up for the boys to play, and they also helped Santa give out gifts. There were so many smiles! So much fun was had!
Not only did the girls give their time, but they also purchased presents for each child who lives on Glenwood’s campus and gift bags for the adults. They truly have given these children the miracle of Christmas, and gifts to open on Christmas morning.
Their time, generosity, and love is what Christmas is really about!
