Ahwatukee Girl Scout Collecting Donations for At-Risk Women, Girls
Ahwatukee resident and Girl Scout Emily Hartzler is working on her Gold Award and as her final project she is creating 500 care packages for girls and women at risk for or currently being sexually trafficked. And she’s seeking donations.
According to the Ahwatukee Foothills News, each package will include a blanket that folds into a pillow, a hygiene kit, snacks, a sweatshirt and a card that offers information to get help. The packages will be distributed by the Phoenix Law Enforcement Agency.
Hartzler is looking for donations of new or gently used sweatshirts, and also needs sewers to help sew a pocket and finish an edge on the blankets. Donations can be dropped off 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 20-24 at Foothills Baptist Church, 15450 S. 21st St. in Phoenix.
