Brownie Girl Scouts from Peace Lutheran Church in Saginaw, MI seek to grow through Christian service. This fall they collected over 150 preemie garments for the NICU at a local hospital. According to Troop Leaders Haley Cottrell and Keri Radde, “We believe it is our duty to not only spread the Word of God but to Serve Him actively and are thrilled to do so through the avenue of Girl Scouting.” Other service projects included stuffing piles of shoe boxes for Operation Christian Child, singing a joyful noise “to please our Father in Heaven” by Christmas caroling at a nursing home, and making cat toys and canine treat bags for local animal shelters. In the spring, the Brownie Girl Scouts plan to serve as greeters and ushers on Girl Scout Sunday, sew dresses to support the “Little Dresses for Africa” ministry, and put together gift boxes for first responders in their community.
