For their Girl Scout Silver Award, Chanhassen Girl Scout Troop 10963 — McKayla Becker, Hannah Davis, Rachelle Marvin and McKenna Ryan — created a children’s play area and signage for the PROP Shop, a nonprofit resale store that sells clothing, furniture and household items to the community.
The PROP Shop’s proceeds benefit families in need in Eden Prairie, Chanhassen and Chaska. The girls designed, built and decorated a playhouse for the PROP Shop’s expanded client room, which will be completed in early 2013. The playhouse is supplied with a chalkboard table, chairs, play rug, bookshelf, books and toys. The girls organized a book drive that collected more than 750 children’s books. They received material donations from Home Depot and used troop earnings to build and supply the play area, which will be a permanent part of the client room. The girls also designed and fabricated new acrylic interior signs for the shop’s resale store.
