All throughout the region, Girl Scouts are reaching out to local military personnel, EMTs and paramedics, police officers and fire fighters to say thank you for all they do to protect our communities and country.
Here are some of their stories:
Girl Scouts from Troops 1120 and 11022 collected donations and put together baskets of cheer including fruit, nuts and healthy snacks. The girls then delivered the baskets to Baltimore City Fire Houses and the Baltimore City Southwest Police Station. The girls’ goal was to help build supportive relationships between the community youth and the first responders.

and SSG Scutt presented the troop with a Certificate of Thanks on behalf of the Department of the Army, and took some extra time out of their day to talk with the girls.
