Girl Scouts Use Cookie Sale Proceeds to Help Local School

As a service project, Girl Scout Junior Troop 28253 purchased new flowers and decorations to beautify the main entrance at Carmel Elementary School.  They also spent the next day picking up debris, dead-heading plants, and weeding the beds around the school. 

The Troop learned about planting and maintaining flower beds while doing a great project to help the school. 

The girls use proceeds from their cookie sales for service projects throughout the year, this is the 4th time they have planted flowers/bushes at their school.  The girls have also planned a service project for the school library for the holidays, and they will again donate proceeds from their cookie sales towards a service project this spring. 

Girl Scout Junior Troop 28253 is based out of Carmel Elementary and is comprised of 4th and 5th graders.
