    heres a line in the Girl ScoutPromise that says help

    people at all times. That is a PERFECT statement to

    describe what happened on the night of January20th, 2012! To achieve their bronze award, Girl Scout

    Troop 87 organized an entertaining event in the Kossmann

    School Gym that helped the homeless, the hungry, animals

    at a shelter, and the environment. They even had a DJ and


    Daisy, Brownie, and Junior Girl Scout troops had fun at

    each station. At the animal station, the girls had fun filling

    the bags for the animals (bones and dog treats) which will

    be donated to Noahs Ark Animal Shelter and Furever

    Home Dog Rescue. The homeless bags (bathroom items

    and a happy quote), and breakfast bags (breakfast foods)

    will be donated to Bridges, which is an organization thatserves the homeless in New York City. At the environment

    station, Girl Scouts decorated Shop Rite bags and wrote

    some environmental slogans on them, along with some

    color and environmental drawings. Troop 87 will then send

    them back to Shop Rite, to use with thei r customers on

    Earth Day- a great way to let people know about how we

    should be taking care of the environment!Along with these

    enjoyable service projects, additional activities were set at

    all of the stations like: a recycling relay, a Juliet Lowe (the

    person who created Girl Scouts) action story, and a dog

    game. To make the night even more fun, there was dancing

    activities at the DJ stand. Girl Scouts had fun dancing withgirls from troop 87.

    To end this wonderful night, everyone got into a circle

    and lit 100 electric candles to celebrate 100 years of scout-

    ing. Each person lit the candle of the person standing next

    to them. This event was truly a great way to let everyoneslight shine!
