Girltopia Expo 2012

The Girltopia 2012 event was an amazing opportunity that was given graciously by the Girl Scout organization to the  Warmth From the Millyard project! This event was held on February 25th at St. Anselm College in Manchester, New Hampshire.  2,500 girls and adults celebrated the Girl Scouts 100th anniversary and also donated over 500 items of warm clothing to our project.

There were around 100 booths set up and UNH Manchester’s Warmth From the Millyard project was one of them.  Our volunteers helped spread the message about the needs of the Manchester community by collecting scarves, hats, neck warmers, mittens, gloves, and also a small amount of canned food.  We also made origami hearts as a fun activity for the girls and even the adults. This experience was fun and the message was pure: to learn about different organizations in the community leads to “discovery, connecting, and taking action”, which is a great Girl Scout message.
