While words like pandemic, fear, death, and toilet paper may define March 2020 for most, for members of Yavapai County it needs to be remembered as the time local children raised over $2,000 worth of funds and in-kind donations for Yavapai CASA For Kids foundation to support foster youth in the county.
Who Are The Little Heroes?
On March 5th 2020, Prescott Girl Scout Troop 3145 donated over 300 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies to Yavapai CASA for Kids Foundation. When asked why they wanted to do this the girls stated they just wanted “kids who might not get cookies to get them.”
These girls spent hours soliciting outside of stores, at farmers markets, and beyond. “We asked people who didn’t want buy a box for themselves, if they’d want to donate one for a foster child; they would always turn back.” These girls, according to an AzCA representative, have “brought so many smiles to the youth.”
On March 5th 2020, Mary Supergan of Glassford Hill Middle School sent Yavapai CASA for Kids Foundation a check for $675.00.
This reminds the community how important it is to take care of its most vulnerable members.
The school’s Student Council put on a dance called “Hearts of Gold” in February to raise money for local foster youth.The idea to help foster youth was brought up by 1 of the Council’s 21 members and the rest immediately jumped on board.
We Can Learn From Them
Girl Scout Troop 3145 and the Glassford Hill Middle School Student Council members remind us how important it is to take care of our community’s most vulnerable members. This reminder is especially needed now.
