Cadette Lends a Helping Hand

Gabrielle, a Cadette in Troop # 1236, showed that random acts of kindness really can make a difference. While shopping at her local Wal-Mart, Gabrielle noticed a lost credit card on the ground in the parking lot and picked it up. She contacted Wal-Mart and was able to locate the owners of the card. The card belonged to the Community Action Agency of Northwest Alabama, Inc., a United Way program that empowers low-income families. Because of Gabrielle's thoughtfulness, the Community Action Agency can continue their mission of helping families in need. This kind of consideration for others is the essence of what it means to be a Girl Scout -- to serve others and make the world a better place.
