The Girl Scouts of all the troops in the Berthoud Service Unit got together to donate 15 full Thanksgiving meals for needy families in Berthoud. One troop of Girl Scout Daisies went grocery shopping together to find the items needed for two full meals. Other troops donated canned goods, boxed goods, and helped collect funds to purchase 15 turkeys. Many individual Girl Scouts and their families helped make this annual food drive a big success.
The girls’ effort was combined with other local Boy Scout troops in a great show of community service and teamwork to sort all the donations into Thanksgiving meal baskets, which were donated for distribution through the House of Neighborly Service.
Girl Scout Daisies to Ambassadors and everyone in between – the Berthoud Service Unit of Girl Scouts is a close knit family of girls who enjoy working together on community service projects.
