Girl Scouts help soldiers

| July 17, 2013

army-scouts030Girl Scout Emily White of Troop 2527 received a $100 donation from Major Amy Massaglia of Columbus. The donation was to purchase Girl Scout cookies to be donated to the major’s units in Kuwait/Iraq. Additional donations from customers and sister Girl Scout Troup 468 were used to purchase surplus boxes of cookies to add to the shipment. VFW 1330 also made a donation to cover the expense of shipping the cookies to Kuwait. Cookies were also given to another of the major’s units that just returned to the United States in June.

Girl Scout Troop 2527 has completed several other projects to show its support for the military such as: Wal-Mart’s Salute to Veterans Ceremony, Relay for Life Honor Guard Ceremony, cards to veterans on Veteran’s Day, letters and cards of condolence to a local fallen soldier’s family, donation of nuts/candy to the Elks for military care packages, Coshocton County Memorial Day Parade, and the Coshocton County Veterans Service Office veterans ceremony balloon launch.
