Students in the typhoon-devastated Philippines are receiving some much-needed help very soon, thanks to the Morristown Service Unit of the Girl Scouts.
More than 230 Girl Scouts came together to attend the Share event on April 4 at Woodland School in Morristown, which came from dozens of troops from all over northern New Jersey.
The Service Unit put together the collection of 699 backpacks containing school supplies, which will be sent to the Philippines. The scouts are also raising funds to provide replacement Girl Scout uniforms for Filipino girls who last theirs in the typhoon.
The Scouts aren’t just working to help their counterparts abroad, as they’ve undertaken service projects involving the entire Morris School District with collections for the Community Soup Kitchen and Jersey Battered Women Services.
