Scavenger Hunt To Complete The Amaze Journey

     After we went to our journey weekend, we needed to complete a service project.  The girls came up with a service project for our local crisis center.   They decided they wanted to do a scavenger hunt.  A week before our hunt we picked three long blocks in our neighborhood that we wanted to go to.  One girl scout lived on each block.  Paper bags with notes attached to them were distributed to all of the houses letting them know we would be arriving during our regular meeting time. The note stated that a girl scouts lives on their block and we would be doing a scavenger hunt next week during the times on 4:30 to 6:00.  We requested items such as toothpaste, tooth brushes, deodorant, soap, lotion, shampoo, conditioner and other personal items.  If they didn't have anything we would also accept can or boxed food.  Participants had to leave their items on the front porch and if nothing was there the girls would be ringing the doorbell.                  The day of our scavenger hunt the girls split into three groups.   A lot of the neighbors left the bags on the doorstep. Everyone was excited to go and do the hunt. Our neighborhood was very generous and the girls had a great time.  Points were given for items, food was one point and personal items two points.  We didn't give out prizes, we just counted our items and tallied the points.  After all the hard work we celebrated with pizzas and chocolate chip cookies.  The scavenger hunt turned out to be a success for us and the crisis center!
