Local Girl Scouts recently worked on a project to benefit their fellow classmates in Yadkin County Schools.
“At the beginning of the school year, Valerie [King, Girl Scout regional membership manager] reached out to the Yadkin County School social workers to ask what services might be beneficial for students in need. We shared the ongoing need for hygiene products for families that are financially struggling and unable to access these items,” explained Social Worker Amie Rose. “As school social workers, we work with some of the neediest families and know what a blessing that donations can be for their families.”
The scouts put together bags which included items such as soap, shampoo, toothpaste and laundry detergent.
“We often make home visits and deliver these items at that time, when the family has that need,” Rose said.
“We are greatly appreciative of the thoughtfulness of the Girl Scout troop and their leaders,” she added. “This service project helps fulfill an ongoing need that seems very basic, but is very important.”
