Troop 3044 - Clinton

Troop 3044 is a new troop this year. Since our first meeting at the beginning of August we have completed several service projects: making and donating toys to a local pet rescue organization, making, decorating and delivering cookies to a local firehouse, and collecting tab tops for the Ronald McDonald House with the proceeds directed toward helping a young girl in our community. We have plans for many more service projects as that is one focus of the troop: to give back and help others. Some of those projects include making no-sew blankets for a local shelter, collecting personal care items for a local woman's shelter and collecting gently used shoes for an international organization.
