Ft Myers Girl Scout Troop Gives Back To SWFL Kids

The girls in Girl Scout troop 612 worked hard to earn their cookie money, they didn't mind, they knew the money would fund their activities for the rest of the year. One of the things they wanted to do most was ... "something nice to help other kids!" Very admirable considering GS troop 612 is comprised entirely of Daisies and Brownies ... kids between the ages of 5 and 8 years old! Both parents and troop leaders were very proud of their kids choice for spending a considerable portion of their earnings to help others. The girls are quick to remind us that giving is part of the Girl Scout Promise ...

On my honor, I will try:
To serve God and my country,
To help people at all times,
And to live by the Girl Scout Law

The girls decided they wanted to go to "Build-A-Bear" and each girl would make a bear for themselves and one that they could give to kids who were in the hospital. The bears they made for themselves were dressed in Girl Scout uniforms just like their's, and the bears they made for the children in the hospital were of their own personal stylings and designs.
