TILTON, NH – Girl Scouts take action to make the world a better place. Troop 10639 did that by gathering items needed by those experiencing homelessness and creating Blessing Bags, which were given to those picking up meal kits at Bread and Roses Soup Kitchen in Franklin on May 20.

The troop, encompassing girls in grades 7-12, got assistance from the community by hosting a drive-through supply collection on April 24 at Hall Memorial Library in Northfield. A few days later they met at a local park to assemble four large game bags for children and 30 adult bags.

Emma Davidson, a Girl Scout Cadette in eighth grade said, “We have already received wonderful feedback from our outreach partner and a request for a few more to distribute to displaced and homeless students in that area.”

This project was the result of the girls’ participation in the council’s Community Service Club, which provides opportunities for members to take action in their communities.
