BECKLEY – Girl Scouts of Southern West Virginia convene for the ‘Great Big Give Back.’
The Girl Scouts are celebrating Girl Scout Week at the Youth Museum in Beckley.
Scouts were hopping around stations doing community service, including assembling kits for nursing homes, making cards for the VA Center, creating chew toys for the animal shelter, and forming clay bowls for the Empty Bowls program.
Spokeswoman Debbie Kemmerling they are trying to make this an annual event because it helps drive home important lessons.
“The Girl Scouts state in their promise that we will make the world a better place and it's no time to start than when they're young … We're always helping the community.”
And the Girl Scouts want to remind you their cookie sales are ongoing.
