Welcome back from a long weekend! On this run down, we've got stories ranging from Girl Scouts coming together for those in need to an incredibly touching look at the Girl Scouts Beyond Bars program.
- The Washington Examiner is reporting on Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano's new partnership with Girl Scouts of the USA and a new preparedness scouting patch for girls.
- My Fox 5 is reporting on Maryland Girl Scout Troop 7140, which meets twice a month at a rather unusual location: the state Women's Correctional Institution in Jessup.
- Families in the Calaveras Unified School District in California who are facing hunger, homelessness and other troubles triggered by the economic recession are getting a helping hand from local Girl Scouts. Read about it in the Stockton Record.
- Lastly, The Florida Times-Union is reporting that Girl Scouts from Jacksonville Beach Troop 207 have been donating time and resources to financially challenged families with back-to-school needs.
Have a great week!
