As the first scouts-led Venture to ever partner with United Way Youth Venture, the 8-11 year-old girls of Troop 61150 in Littleton decided to combine their efforts to earn a Girl Scouts bronze medal for their troop with a UWYV experience to make an even bigger difference in their community. After seeing the devastating effects that recent natural disasters had on families across the nation, the Life Buckets Venture created 72-hour survival life buckets for families. The life buckets include emergency rations, communication devices if the power goes out, and ways to find clean water if needed.
The Food Chain Team has a mission to provide food to the population that needs it. They understand that far too many people are dying because they do not have enough food. This Team helps the people who visit Loaves & Fishes. They fill bags of non-perishable food items to donate to Loaves & Fishes. They host Easter Egg Hunts and hand out flyers to raise awareness for the cause.
