Troop 10442 believes that no children should go without
school supplies and shoes.
Troop 10442 Donates Backpacks filled with School Supplies

Troop 10442 knows that their girl power can go along way in making their community a better place. This summer, the troop  from the Great Earth Service Unit, spent time filling 500 backpacks with school supplies to donate to In Jacobs Shoes. The girls have been helping them for four years now. Troop 10442  plans to return in August to help clean hundreds of gently used shoes for school children in the tri-county area.
