May 14, 2014ROSWELL, Ga. – Brownie Troop 11763 partnered with Feel Beautiful Today, an organization created in 2010 with the mission of providing love, hope and encouragement to women and young ladies affected by cancer through gifts of beautiful, handmade jewelry. Feel Beautiful Today teamed up with Pam Shinholster, cancer survivor and volunteer at North Fulton Hospital, to host a jewelry-making workshop where Brownie Troop 11763 sponsored and created 15 "Boxes of Love" to benefit women and girls affected by cancer.
Troop 11763 is part of the Roswell Service Unit. The troop raised the funds to create the 15 Boxes of Love by asking for donations from customers purchasing Girl Scout cookies at their booth.
"Feel Beautiful Today congratulates the leaders and Brownies of Troop 11763 for their caring hearts and willing hands. Their efforts will truly be appreciated by the recipients of these Boxes of Love," said Biviana Franco, founder of Feel Beautiful Today.
The boxes were created at an event at the Cross of Life Lutheran Church and will be delivered to cancer patients at North Fulton Hospital.
"We would also like to thank Pastor Terri Stagner-Collier, of Cross of Life, and her daughter, Nellie Collier for supporting the event and providing the venue," said Franco.
Troop 11763 helped many women in the fight against cancer by making them feel beautiful and reminding them that they are not alone.
