Service
  • Check back often for service updates and new opportunities!

  • Our Service Chair, Patty Van Langen will send out direct emails to parents/Leaders as many service requests are time sensitive.  Girls are recognized at the Annual Awards Ceremony with a special Hillsborough SU72 Community Service Award if they participate in at least 5 SU-sponsored Community Events or Service Events so keep track of that service! 

    Council also has a Service Award opportunity called Hearts of Service.  The amount of hours differs by program levels and details can be found here.

      EASTER BASKETS for INTERFAITH HOSPITALITY NETWORK

      Please help support the Interfaith Hospitality Network of Somerset County's Easter basket collection. This year they are collecting Easter basket goodies for 25 children. These families are currently living in local Somerset county shelters or temporary housing. Many have limited resources, and can't afford holiday supplies or treats. Please consider donating any of the suggested items. Items can be dropped off any time, no later than Sunday March 23, to  Sara Wendt at 129 Terhune Lane. Please see the attached sign up genius for more details. Thank you in advance for your generosity. Thank you Sara for coordinating this opportunity! This counts toward Hearts of Service AND SU72 Service Award.

    • S.H.I.P.

      Girl Scouts of Hillsborough supports SHIP each year with our annual food drive in February.  This food drive supports SHIP’s mobile soup kitchen.  For those that aren't aware, SHIP is located in nearby Somerville, NJ.  From their website:

      SHIP, the Samaritan Homeless Interim Program, began operations on March 5, 1984 in response to the unheeded cry of the many women, children and men who are in desperate need of emergency housing and associated services. 
       Clients coming to SHIP are in desperate need of help.  Many are the working poor. They include those that suffer from homelessness or being near homeless.  Many are hungry or suffer from substance abuse dependency, HIV/AIDS, mental health issues, or neglect and isolation. Services are tailored to each individual's need and vary in duration according to each individual or families situation.  SHIP provides this unique population with critically needed emergency interim services. 
       
       These services may include advocacy, emergency interim housing, interim counseling, and support services, that greatly enhance their chances of regaining their self-sufficiency again. SHIP is dedicated to improving the quality of life for the poor.  Clients are eligible to apply for all of SHIP's Programs and Services.”
      S.H.I.P.
       
      • Looking forward to next year, we are looking for an older troop to coordinate our annual food drive, as well as continue to spread the word about SHIP.  Please contact the Service mailbox if your troop is interested.  
      • Additionally, Barnes & Noble has offered to allow Girl Scouts to host a holiday gift wrapping to share information on this organization.   Please reach out to the Service mailbox if your troop is interested in this a service opportunity. 
      Looking for recipes to make for S.H.I.P., troop 60304 created this recipe book as part of their silver award
