Girl Scouts, Goodwill partner to help those in need

Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont, in partnership with Goodwill Industries, once again promoted their annual community service project, a "Good Turn for Goodwill" during October.


For the 16th year, the project encouraged local Girl Scouts to collect gently used clothing, toys, books and household items to benefit their local Goodwill stores and donation centers.


Throughout October, Girl Scouts from across western and central North Carolina collected 7,611 bags of goods, a 27 percent increase in girls participating and a 26 percent increase in bags collected from the 2016 results.


"The goal of this project is to help those who are unemployed or underemployed get back on their feet through the resources that Goodwill offers," said Lane Cook, chief executive officer of Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont. "Every year, this project teaches our girls life lessons while they do their part to give back to the community. It is always a great collaboration for all those involved."
