When I heard that there was a Girl Scout Troop at Open Door Mission's Lydia House, I was thrilled to know that these very special girls would be able to enjoy all the fun and learning of Girl Scouts along with a sense of belonging to something bigger homelessness.
Then I saw the newscast of their selling ability on the UNO campus! The girls were great, organized, worked as a team, were polite, and sold cookies. I knew I had to support them. I let my friends know I had “connections” and could get Girl Scout Cookies for them, without them tramping all over town. Of course, I bought a couple boxes of certain Girl Scout Cookies that I love.
These girls need all the love, prayers, and encouragement we can give them so they can flourish. Now I have to go find out if there are any cookies left…to fill my office cookie tin!
