Local Girl Scouts Donating To Troops

Local Girl Scouts Donating To Troops

Staff members in Clear Lake are always busy packing boxes with everything from toiletries, to snacks, to board games. The goods from the nonprofit Help Our Military Endure -- or HOME -- are heading overseas to troops all over the world.

That includes troops in Afghanistan, Iraq and Kuwait, along with Kosovo, South Africa and Colombia. HOME tries to reach as many as it can.

In the last few weeks, the organization has received donations from the Girl Scouts, including Troop 7660. They'll be sending letters and a lot of cookies.

"They need to enjoy something," said Girl Scout Madie Buchanan. "They need to have something that sort of just lightens up their day, and just sort of says, 'You know what? I can do this!'"

HOME was founded in 2000. Click to visit the Facebook page, and follow the organization on Twitter.
