Rochester Girl Scout Brownie Troop 40392 collected shoes to send to Afghanistan, where many families have a difficult time providing shoes for all their members. Much of their footwear is tattered, ill-fitting, and worn, as reported by troop member Rebecca’s uncle, a nurse stationed in Afghanistan.
The troop reached out to the community to collect shoes to send overseas as the service project component of the Take Action Key in their Brownie Quest. They called their project Operation Cozy Toes. Below are pictures of some of the families who received the girls’ donations.
