Girl Scout Troop 283 Morse Elementary School Overland Park, Kansas
Early last year approximately seventeen Girl Scouts, ages nine and ten, had a clothing drive to help the children in Calcutta. The girls worked very hard to gather good used clothing to send to me in Boston where I sort and repack everything and ship it on to my contacts in Calcutta. It was a beautiful project and everything worked out.
There were so many nice clothes, (about 100 lbs) that I sent the donations to three different places I work with. This way the Girl Scouts in Kansas could see more of their hard work going to many children in Calcutta. The first box was sent to the Municipal School, the second sent to St. Teresa’s School for the Angels from The Street Program, and the last box was sent to the Institute of Social Work at the Mominpur School. It took a few months for everything to go full circle but in the end the girls of Troop 283, Morse Elementary School, Overland, Kansas received a nice Thank You letter and lots of photos of the good work done. It was a great project for everyone involved.
The kids in Calcutta received beautiful clothing and the Girl Scouts in Kansas learned about the world we live in and how easy it is to help a person in need. A Big THANK YOU to everyone in America and India who stepped forward to help with this special project, especially all the children
