The Girl Scouts of Troop 413 in Raleigh hosted a Blanket-thon to benefit SAFEchild this spring.

The girls hosted 30 additional Girl Scout Juniors for the event, which gave participants the chance to make fleece blankets to be given to children who visit the SAFEchild Advocacy Center in Raleigh, which serves as a central location where abused children can get the medical and psychological assistance they need as well as legal and law enforcement help. In all, the Scouts donated 50 blankets to SAFEchild.

The members of Troop 413, which meets at Highland United Methodist Church, are Corina Argiry, Mary Margaret Brohmal, Lila Casey, Lily Belle Dye, Ellie Ergenzinger, Lily Fogleman, Emily Gerber, Maddie Lee, Mary Martha Stokes and Amelia Wade. They earned a Bronze Award for their project.
