Troop Feeds Habitat Workers 

Girl Scout Troop 20099 served breakfast to several Habitat for Humanity workers at a work site in Gastonia recently. The volunteers were building a house for a cafeteria worker at the school where many of the girls in the troop attend. They were very excited that they could help give back!

Does your troop have news they would like to share in the P2P Express? Maybe you have recently finished a service project or just got back from a troop trip! Send your photos and information to the Marketing Department and we will be sure to include it in an upcoming issue.
