SU 51-7 Annual Winter Service Project & SHARE Spaghetti Dinner

DATE: Monday, December 7, 2015 (in lieu of the SU Meeting)
TIME: 6:00pm to 8:00pm
LOCATION: Floris Elementary School Cafeteria

All Girl Scouts from SU 51-7, and members of their immediate families, are invited to attend the SU 51-7 Annual Winter Service Project & SHARE Spaghetti Dinner!

This year, we will be decorating and filling boxes with new baby items to deliver to the Department of Family Services (Children, Youth and Families Division), in Fairfax, VA. They are in need of these boxes to be made with the littlest members of their families in mind. Baby Boxes for newborns ages 0-6 months should include:
• Onesies
• Clothes
• Receiving blankets
• Diapers
• Learning toys
• Pacifiers
• Bottles

In conjunction with the Service Project, we will host a Family Spaghetti Dinner to raise money for SHARE. The dinner will include noodles, a variety of sauces, bread roles, dessert and beverages. We will serve the dinner in the Floris Cafeteria, after the boxes have been completed. All girl scout families are invited to enjoy the dinner. We will be offering food tickets at the event for a small, suggested donation of $5 per person ($20 maximum per family) for those of you who wish to eat. All proceeds from the offering of food tickets will go to SHARE.

We will need volunteers to help plan and execute these two activities: both the dinner and the project. We will also be asking for donated items. Contact Tina Anderson as soon as possible if would like to join the planning committee.

A Google Docs registration link will be emailed out to all troop leaders so families may sign up, online, to attend and order their patches.
