Congratulations to Brownie Troop 506 of Vienna, Virginia! The troop had a successful Reader to Reader Book Drive on behalf of Brookings Elementary in Springfield, Massachusetts.
Brookings was heavily damaged by a tornado in June 2011 and lost all their books. The Brownie troop adopted the school as their service project with great results. Here are a few words from their troop leader.
This is Christie with the brownie troop in Virginia. The girls have just completed their book drive for Brookings Elementary school. Through friends, church and their school, they collected 6 cases of books for Brookings. They took a photo of the troop with the books and wrote a letter to go in each box.
This was a great project for the girls. And because you paired us up with Brookings, I was able to go to the internet and pull video of the tornado and also pictures of the school afterwards. The girls had so many questions and we had an awesome discussion about a multitude of related topics. Thank you for opportunity to help them carry out their first “on their own” service project.
Thanks so much!
