September 17, 2013ROSWELL, Ga. Girl Scout Troop 347 received their Bronze Award, the highest honor a Junior Girl Scout can achieve, on May 16 through their work with the Foster Care Support Foundation in Roswell.
Foster Care Support Foundation is a community charity serving more than 3,000 foster kids and families annually across Georgia. The troop organized neighborhood and school collection drives, collecting baby dolls and more than 100 pairs of shoes. The troop also volunteered at the foster care center on Saturdays to play with the younger kids while their foster parents "shopped" for everyday necessities. The girls worked with the foster kids, leading them in crafts, games and even rocking a few babies.
The troop wants to encourage others to volunteer or donate to Foster Care Support Foundation. More information can be found online at www.fostercares.org.
