Youth in Philanthropy - Thank You Brownie Troop 62106!
"We are from Girl Scout Troop 62016. We are a Brownie troop of second grade students, and we were learning about philanthropy. We attend the Bowman School in Palo Alto and we initiated an effort to collect donated goods from other families at the school. We donated our time helping to organize and restock shelves in the pantry. As we considered a variety of projects and organizations we could help, we watched the videos EHP posted on their website and reflected on how we can help others in our community through our efforts. Thank you for providing our troop with a wonderful experience to work together, to make a small difference for others, and to learn about our community!"
