Brownie Troop 58 meets at Clarksville Elementary. This year the girls decided to use some of the money they earned from cookie sales to sweeten the day for children in the pediatric unit at Howard County General Hospital.
As a troop, the Brownies went shopping to hand select activity books, stuffed animals, coloring books and crayons to donate. They then attached handmade cards with positive messages to each gift. Their gifts filled five large laundry baskets.
The girls were excited and happy to know their donation would bring joy to children in the hospital. Good going, girls. May you always remember to consider the needs of others.
