‘Make the World a Better Place’ will benefit Goodwill and CareNet
Girl Scouts across the state are teaming up with Goodwill Industries of Northwest North Carolina and local food banks in the state for the inaugural “Make the World a Better Place” community service project for the month of October.
According to Tammy Keezer, Service Unit Manager for Girl Scouts in Macon County, troops will be collecting items for the local Goodwill and have special permission to collect food items for CareNet. There are nine Girl Scout troops in Macon County, with an average total of about 120 members ranging in age from five to 17 years old. “It is a great opportunity for the girls to work within the community and to work toward gaining the ‘Make the World a Better Place’ patch at the end of the month,” said Keezer.
