  • The Plainfield Patch, IL reports that Cadette Girl Scout Troop 572 recently cut out and sewed dresses for an orphanage in Haiti. The girls were excited at the opportunity to help other girls around the world. One of the leaders' cousins is a missionary and goes to Haiti regularly - he will deliver the dresses.
