Girl Scout Brownie Troop 46707 filled 24 stockings for the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Home of Erie.
Stockings were filled with wish list items provided by the home. Hygiene items, socks, hats, gloves, slippers, puzzle books, clothing, sweet treats and more all filled all stockings.
The girls collected items and also used proceeds from their fall and winter fundraisers.
“When you support our troop and purchase from our fundraisers, it not only positively impacts the girls individually, but it goes into back to the local community,” said Jessica Sparling, leader of Troop 46707.
This is the second year in a row that Troop 46707 has stuffed stockings for the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Home and the troop is looking forward to making this an annual holiday tradition, and being able to supply more stockings each year.
The girls earned a “Giving Back” badge, and truly enjoyed filling the stockings and giving back to those in need.
Brownie Troop 46707 is a troop of second-graders in North East and is led by Sparline and Tiffany Brown.
