As a "giving" project for November, our Girl Scout Troop
made "Socks of Love" for a local veterans home. We modified
an idea we saw online and asked the local veterans home what
items their residents could use. Our troop purchased crew
height socks, baby power (4 oz size), plastic combs, and
small individual tissue packs. In addition, our girls made
small notes and included one in each sock. We formed an
assembly line and filled one sock with the matching sock
(folded up), the toiletries, and a note. We tied with a red
bow and attached a "Socks of Love" tag. The girls had a
great time assembling the socks and completing a "giving"
project for the veterans.
