Girl Awards: August 2008 Archives

Thumbnail image for 8380.JPGSpanish Fort United Methodist Church, located in Baldwin County, operates a Uniform Closet that distributes gently used and new uniforms and school supplies to children in need.  On July 26, they had their largest distribution ever and were able to assist 403 children before the supplies were depleted.  Parents and children began lining up at 2:00 am to receive these uniforms and supplies.  According to Jill Arnott, director of the Uniform Closet, there is a huge need in the rural areas of Baldwin County for these items. 

 

After hearing about this, Junior Troop 8380 decided to conduct several uniform drives this year to help replenish the closet.  This drive, among other things, will count toward their Bronze Award and they need your help.  As your child returns to school this month, please bring their old uniforms to either the Montgomery or Mobile service centers.  Staff will make sure they get to the troop.  Donations can be dropped off at Spanish Fort United Methodist Church (just mention they are for the Girl Scout drive).

 

 Items needed are:

·         Uniform bottoms in Khaki or Navy Blue

·         Uniform tops in White or Navy Blue

·         Back packs

·         Lunch boxes

·         Coats and Sweaters

·         School Supplies (paper, pencil, notebooks, etc.)

 

If you have any questions, please contact Alicia Spencer.
