Former Girl Scouts keep helping their community
JOPLIN, Mo. — A group of girls who left behind Girl Scouts, stuck together and kept their spirit of service alive by earning a Make the World a Better Place patch.
The girls disbanded from their Daisy-Brownie girl scout troop last year but managed to raise more than $500 by selling Girl Scout cookies.
On Saturday, the group presented those funds to Wildcat Glades. Officials say that money will go towards beautifying the park.
“I believe that it just it teaches them on how to make the world a better place and recycle,” said Keisha Bock, the girls’ former troop leader.
Wildcat Glades plans on using the money to buy new bird feeders and remove graffiti.
