Salvation Army Gets A Donation From Local Girl Scout Troop [AUDIO]

Ashli Gerdes

ST. CLOUD — Local Girl Scouts from Mary Of Lords in Little Falls donated around 5,000 items to the St. Cloud Area Salvation Army today (Wednesday).

The fourth and fifth graders filled a van and SUV with items such as clothes, food, blankets and toiletries which they unloaded at the Salvation Army.

The seven girls are working towards their Leadership Award also known as Bronze Award. As part of their project they wanted to help out the homeless community.

Girl Scout leader, Tammy Filippi says it was an eye opening experience for the girls to learn that anyone can be homeless.
