Little Falls Girl Scouts take on huge project

A very special Little Falls Girl Scout troup is delivering 4,000-5,000 items to The St. Cloud Area Salvation Army in St. Cloud at 4 p.m. Wednesday, May 1. The items which fill a van and an SUV include clothes, books, food, diapers, toiletries, quilts, blankets, shoes, toilet paper and paper towels.

In November 2012, the girls led by Tammy Philippi visited the Corp building in St. Cloud for a tour of the Army’s programs, services and 64-bed Emergency Shelter. They were so touched by what they experienced, they decided to take on a huge project over several months to collect items that are greatly needed at the Shelter.
