Troop 3484 didn’t stop with just their cookie profits. They also launched project "Project Welcome Home" last week to collect donations of kitchen and household items and deliver them to veterans who have recently moved into their new homes. So far, they have received donations from Bodum, Bed, Bath & Beyond, OXO and the Girl Scouts Council to donate pots and pans and scrub brushes but still need towels, sheets and utensils.
"Being the kind of girls they are, they were heartbroken that even though veterans get housed, when they get to their new places they lack basic items like cleaning supplies and sheets, so they went forth and did something," troop leader Gina Sohn said.
Anyone who is interested in donating can do so online or by emailing the Department of Veterans Services at [email protected]
