Local Girl Scout Troop “Scarf Bombs” Center City To Give Gifts Of Warmth To Homeless
By Justin Udo
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The calendar may say Spring, but some of the temperatures we are seeing make it feel more like Winter.
So a local girl scout troop decided to help some of the less fortunate who have to constantly deal with the cold weather — by scarf-bombing.
What is scarf bombing?
“We are going to put scarves around the city, and we are going to leave them for homeless people,” a girl scout said.
Girl Scout Troop 5092 from Delaware County handed out a myriad of multi-colored homemade and donated scarves all around Center City.
Their handiwork was on display everywhere from Love Park to Suburban Station.
“They put tags on them that said ‘I am not lost. Take me if you need me or give me to someone else who needs it,’” a girl scout said.
Yes this is a project to help some of the girls earn a badge, but they say it is more than just earning another award.
“I think I can speak for all of us and say, it makes us feel good. I mean we are helping out our community,” another girl scout said.
The girls passed out almost 200 scarves.
