Last year during cookie season Girl Scout Aminah Khan’s Girl Scout Troop visited the Dallas Refugee Center as part of their Gift of Caring. The Refugee Center provides shelter for adults and children that have been forced to flee their homelands.
After their visit Aminah’s troop decided they wanted to do more to help the Center and decided that their Girl Scout Bronze Award project would be to build a library there.
How could they do this and engage their local community at the same time? The GS Troop decided to hold a Muslim Girl Scout Fun Day at the IANT (Islamic Association of North Texas) Mosque in Richardson. They planned family events and asked that event participants bring in books to donate to the troop’s Dallas Refugee Center library project and also collected canned food to donate to the center.
The event was a huge success! The family event included arts & crafts, face painting, and a bounce house. Another fun component was that the girls got to decorate special hijabs, the head cover worn by many Muslim women. At the end of the day the Troops had collected tons of books and food for their donation to the Dallas Refugee Center.
