Girl Scouts doing a school supply drive.

Why not earn a school supply drive for your own school! These girls from troop 7565 collected school supplies for a school in Puerto Rico through GS* Caribe council as they are were unable to do cookie sales this year and are still recovering from the hurricanes of 2017. Our community also saw damages from hurricane Harvey but it was chosen to help those more in need than ourselves since there are parts of Puerto Rico still without working electricity. Sisters to every Scout!
