Girl Scouts Heart of the South held a meeting last Monday night to discuss upcoming events, have a discussion among parents and troop leaders, and to get questions answered from Angela Woods, CEO of Girl Scouts Heart of the South.
Woods was also there to listen to any concerns and answer any questions that may arise.
There are approximately sixty girls in the Union County region of the Girl Scouts between the ages of 5 and 18 years old.
Woods said that the Girl Scouts program is interested in supporting girls. The mission of the Girl Scouts is to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
The Girl Scout designations are as follows: Daisy (K-1st grade), Brownie (2nd-3rd grade), Junior (4th-5th grade), Cadette (6th-8th grade), Senior (9th-10th grade), and Ambassador (11th-12th grade).
Girl Scouts are involved in many programs, including the famed cookie program, which is their biggest fundraiser. The girls are involved in community service and other charitable opportunities. For example, a few of the projects that the girls might become involved in is collecting stuffed animals and collecting coke tabs to give to St. Jude in Memphis, helping with the Good Samaritan food pantry, participating in a can food drive to help the needy, and donating to the toy closet at First United Methodist Church.
Woods said, “The Girls Scouts teaches girls to give back to the community at a young age.”
