Calabasas – West Valley Chapter

This chapter was started in August 2001.

 Currently there are over 80 volunteers ages 4 to 94.

 This chapter has brought together a multitude of backgrounds and generations.

Our common thread will always be the children in need of a Binky.

Always made by hand and always with love.

Welcome Girl Scouts

The Girl Scouts of all ages can support Binky Patrol by making blankets or collecting fabric and yarn. Girl Scouts of the San Fernando Valley and the Rancho Calabasas Service Unit donated over 100 binky blankets in 2004. Over 100 Girl Scouts also participated and helped to make 300 binkies at the “Bink-A-Thon” on October 23, 2004.


Sewing machines and Notion boxes may be checked out at the Girl Scout Service Center.
