Englewood Girl Scouts from 6 different troops recently collected personal care items for people in the Staten Island area of New York who were affected by super-storm Hurricane Sandy. Troop 208 packaged and shipped more than 130 toothbrushes and tubes of toothpaste, 100 bars of soap, 75 pairs of socks, and many other health and beauty items including hand towels, washcloths, razors, deodorant, lip balm, combs, hairbrushes, hats, scarves, and gloves. This is just a small way that Girl Scouts and their families and friends can serve our country and help others in need. We stand tall and proud to be Girl Scout sisters.
