Girl Scouts Also Build Basketball Courts!

Girl Scouts are on a mission to make the world a better place. 16-year-old, Claire Dundee's latest effort has done just that. In search of a project to complete for her final and highest honor as a Girl Scout, the Girl Scout Gold Award, Claire wanted to do something that really made an impact on lives.


When learning about a local domestic violence shelter, and the fact that most kids living there can't go outside for security reasons, she decided that she was going to do something special for them. Door of Hope is a transitional apartment complex for women and children who have been left homeless as a result of domestic violence.

When Claire spoke with the Door of Hope volunteer coordinator, she got the inside story of what the residents could really use. "We were talking about different projects that were needed the most," she recalled. "The idea of a basketball court came up." That's when Claire got to work!

Watch how she raised the money, coordinated the work effort , and even helped to build a basketball court on the secluded front yard of the complex.

Before, the 18 children who reside there rarely played outside the complex, but now they can! This court is their private refuge, their daily release, a place where they can play in safety!
