Girl Scouts Donate Stuffed Animals to the Fire Department

Tuesday, September 2, 2014  Girl Scout Troop #30514 collected hundreds of stuffed animals from students at the Tatem and Zane North Elementary Schools in town. The girls scouts then donated the stuffed animals to an organization in Africa and a Family Success Center in Clementon, NJ. They also donated two cases of stuffed animals to the Collingswood Fire Department. The fire department will then give out the stuffed animals to children who suffer a loss of their stuffed animals due to fire and also to sick or scared children that we transport to the hospital. The stuffed animals are a great tool to help comfort the scared children. This hits close to home for the girls scouts, who has a member that suffered a fire in her home and lost her stuffed animals. Thank you to the girl scouts for organizing such a wonderful thing. Fiona Basewitz, Grace Janco and Lila DiMasi and scout leader Sarah Pepper!
