At our October 16, 2016 meeting, the girls of Troops 30222 & 30220 expressed concern about the people being evacuated from the Junkins Fire in Custer County. (Several of the girls knew evacuees or emergency responders working this fire.) They decided that they wanted to help and voted on how much of their cookie money to spend and what they wanted to do.
The next day our troop met at our local Walmart and shopped for items, then a few of the girls were even able to join us at the Pueblo County Fairgrounds where we gave our donations to the Red Cross to help the evacuees!
As leaders, we are so incredibly proud of these girls who took the initiative themselves to help make someone’s day a little brighter in such horrible situations.
