Your extra school supplies, hygiene products, and clothes could help support local students and help three Girl Scouts from Southern Door earn their organization’s second-highest award. Troop 4347 members Addison Kluge, Anna Massart, and Joslyn Uecker collected dozens of school supplies, shoes, winter coats, and other items on Saturday to support Southern Door School District’s Caring Closet. Executing the service project is a key requirement for the trio to earn the Girl Scout Silver Award, the highest award a member in the Cadettes program can earn. Uecker says it is important to keep the caring closet for those students less fortunate.
Even if you missed the in-person drive on Saturday at Wal-Mart, you can still support Troop 4347’s efforts. You can arrange pick-up of your donated items with their leaders Michelle Patza (920-256-1932) or Kristi Kluge (920-559-6783). Only 10 percent of Girl Scouts nationwide receive the Silver Award.
