Girl Scout Troop 10136 from the Fayetteville-Manlius Service Unit held a Four Seasons tubing event in January. Girls that attended were asked to bring a new or gently used book that they enjoyed to give as Valentine’s Day presents to pre-kindergarten and elementary students in the Syracuse City School District.

The girls in the troop collected 240 books and then took those books and labeled them with a sticker indicating it was a gift from the Girl Scouts of the FM Service Unit.

The books were distributed at Valentine’s Day to students who might not have access to as many books of their own.

Great job girls! Share your community service project with us by e-mailing kdunne@gsnypenn.org!
