Brittan Acres own Daisy and Brownie troops, along with 2 other troops at Central and White Oaks, are working together to pay it forward this holiday season and provide diapers and wipes to an organization in Redwood City called There With Care. They provide support to families and children facing critical illness during a medical crisis. Sick children go through diapers four times faster than healthy children so they are always in need of diapers and wipes, especially diaper sizes 4, 5 and 6. Please consider a donation. A bin will be placed in the front office for any diapers and wipes that you and your families can contribute. Thank you so much for your support! Thank you for caring and helping others! The Brittan Acres Girl Scout Troops!!
