Berkley Girl Scouts Strike Again!
The Berkley Girl Scouts Strike Again! This past week, Berkley Troop 75329 came back for a visit bringing a car-load of new toys for our Birthday Program. Photos here.
Here is what one of their leaders had to say: “Berkley Girl Scout Troop 75329 volunteered at GiftsToGive during our philanthropy badge back in January. The girls spent an afternoon from their winter vacation and processed clothes for children in need. Their afternoon made a significant impression on them.
Recently the troop had our annual cookie sales and the time came for the girls, ages eight and nine, to decide what to do with the money they had raised. Instead of using it for themselves, they decided to use a portion of their profits to buy toys for children in need and bring them to GiftsToGive. They could have decided to use them for anything, but GiftsToGive and their education on philanthropy made such an
impression, that they were compelled to give back to children less fortunate than themselves.
We are so proud to belong to a community with such a great organization as GiftsToGive where teaching and learning about service and philanthropy is important. What a resource to the community and a tool to culture future philanthropists of that same community! Our sincere thanks.”
