SU 66 Sponsors 8th Annual Party at Grace Manor

Special thanks to Joni Sanderson of SU 66 for the blog post and photos.

Service Unit 66 likes to encourage the girls to think of their community and their responsibility give back to those who may not be as fortunate.  

Just one of their annual projects includes Service Unit 66’s Grace Manor Nursing Home holiday giving party. December 8, 2012 became the 8th annual party sponsored by the Service Unit. Troops of all ages pick individual resident names from the nursing home’s list, each for whom they plan, purchase and make individualized Christmas presents after viewing the resident’s wish list. 
Then, on a Saturday in early December, all the girls come together to sing Christmas carols for the residents, and followed by a present opening party. The patients, many of who have limited incomes and little to no families find this annual event as a special time to connect with the girls.
