Press Rep JaKayla and her Girl Scout Troop 9128 participated in the Sister to Sister - Helping Louisiana Flood Victims community service project. Here is her report:
Recently I was privileged to be given the opportunity to assist in the
Louisiana flood victim supply drive hosted by our Girl Scouts.
As we loaded the truck for our items to be delivered, It really saddened me that the flood victims of Louisiana have had to endure such catastrophic events not one time but a second time within a few years. I know that this will be difficult for them but I also understand that this will make them stronger individuals.
This experience has taught me that communities are families, they are key factors in the success of building up those who are weak or those who have fallen. I must say that those cases of bottled water were really heavy, though. I was a little flushed; honestly, I was really tired after the supply/food drive, but the great feeling that I had after helping load the trailer and drinking the vanilla bean cotton candy frappe' that my mom gave me was unexplainable. Honestly, it was a great feeling and also rewarding.
Along with our city leaders, civil service people, and other governing bodies, we Girl Scouts have a lot of work to do. Let's get busy and be proactive in our community.
Last but not least, I hope that our donations will give them a sense of hope, love, and comfort in knowing that the Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama really cares.
Thanks A lot-Jakayla
