Each year on February 22, World Thinking Day, girls honor their sister Girl Guides and Girl Scouts by taking time to give thanks for their international friendships and remember that Girl Scouts of the USA is part of a global community—one of nearly 150 countries that are members of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS).
This year's theme was "together we can save children's lives." It gave girls across the world the chance to take action on issues affecting children's lives in other countries. This theme is based on Millennium Development Goal 4, which is focused on reducing child mortality rates around the globe.
Girl Scout Troop 94884 of White Township decided that, in addition to their global community projects, they would also like to do something for the local community and children in need in the backyards of Warren County. So they organized a drive to collect pillows, blankets and sheets for Family Promise of Warren County.
On behalf of the staff and board of directors of Family Promise of Warren County, special thanks to the girls of Troop 94884, Troop Leader Kathy Muscat, and all of the mothers and volunteers who contributed to this drive to assist our program and the homeless families and children in Warren County.
Your efforts make a difference!
