From care packages to an awesome Hockey event - Girl Scouts are out and about in every community:
  • In the beautiful La Jolla, CA, girls were packing care kits to send to Haiti through Heart to Heart International. Read more in the La Jolla Light.

  • The Journal News in Ohio has a fantastic story about Chelsea Rice - a member of Girl Scout Troop 40559 of Western Ohio - working toward her Gold Award.
  • In Milton, PA, The Standard-Journal is highlighting members of Junior Girl Scout Troop 312, who recently collected items for care packages to be sent to soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.
  • Yahoo Sports is running the story about The Las Vegas Wranglers - who will dress in Girl Scout themed attire for their coming ECHL game! (There's a video too - which I'll post tomorrow).
