Good News Monday: A Scout Troop Brings Joy to Homeless Girls

This is one of the most inspiring stories I’ve read.

Girl Scout Troop 6000 in New York City was created by an employee of the Girl Scouts of Greater New York who’d had to move to a shelter after her rental home was sold.

Knowing just how rough this situation can be for kids, she volunteered to lead a special chapter for homeless girls. These Scouts go camping, learn about different careers, and build self-esteem while earning their badges. And of course they sell cookies… lots and lots of cookies!

Pretty sweet.
