Many people have heard of Girl Scouts but don’t necessarily know what the Girl Scouts are or how they help girls reach their full potential. Even more interesting, how the Girls Scouts have helped Trinity Free Clinic recently.
The Girl Scouts program was created by Juliette Gordon Low on March 12, 1912. Juliette was living during the Progressive Era. Women still could not vote and opportunities were heavily limited by bureaucracy. Juliette was determined to create a program that brought women together through their individuality, strength, and desire to exercise their intellect. All these ideas led to their mission to build girls into courageous, confident, people of character who work to make the world a better place. Now, over 100 years later, there are 2.6 million active scouts and more than 50 million alums. The desire to spread the mission of the Girl Scouts has reached 92 countries! Plus, their desire to make the world a better place has now reached Trinity Free Clinic.
On September 17th, a local Girl Scout troop decided to purchase and donate tooth brushes and tooth paste to the clinic. The scouts handpicked the products and decided this clinic was who they felt was doing good for the community. Not only did they go out of their way to help the clinic but they also decided to remain anonymous; keeping their main focus on giving back rather than gaining attention! We are so thankful for the donation.
