Troop 2613 Collected Toy Donations

Girl Scouts Participate in Holiday Community Service

Cadette Troop 2613 in Washington, DC, held a Holiday Community Service Day. The Girl Scouts created a budget, made a list, and then went shopping for items they used to fill 14 Salvation Army stockings. Later that day, the Girl Scouts volunteered at a Christmas party hosted by community activist Charles Hicks to help families suffering with HIV/AIDS. The Girl Scouts helped collect toys and books donated by guests.

For their efforts, the scouts were featured in The Washington Informer - a DC-area newspaper! Submitted by Fairley McCaskill
