On Friday, May 11th, 30 sixth grade Hopkinton Girl Scout Cadettes spent their early release afternoon putting together Smile Bags that will be distributed to local hospitals for children fighting cancer.

The Smile Bags were provided by Th​e Amanda Styles Cirelli Foundation which was created in memory of Amanda, who passed away at the young age of 29 after her courageous battle with cancer.

Each girl donated money they earned doing chores around the house, or by opening up their piggy banks. Together they raised $1000 to purchase the items that went into the Smile Bags. The girls were able to assemble 65 Smile Bags that are full of activities and goodies that will hopefully bring a Smile to a child's face.

The girls will finish up this service project by distributing the bags to three Boston-area hospitals in the coming weeks.
