“On my honor, I will ...” That’s often the start of a pledge made by Brownies, Girl Scouts and many other young people who join service organizations to help others. Leaders Patty Scipioni and Alicia Freeman-Nield are very proud of Bethlehem, PA Daisies and Brownies of troops 846 and 8276. Their Fall coat drive grew and grew until it finally included the whole Miller Heights Elementary School community! Patty shares that each Girl Scout brought a quarter to donate, too, as part of the drive’s closing ceremony. The quarter signifies this lesson: One person’s contribution may not “have much power on its own,” but all our contributions together can make a real difference. We’re thrilled that youth organizations like this one join with us each year to make the winter warmer in their home communities. Congratulations, Troops 846 and 8276! Great job!
