Carlsbad Girl Scouts troop set sights on the Bronze Award

CARLSBAD (SAN DIEGO) – An ambitious and local Girl Scout troop is going for the Bronze Award, the third-highest award a Girl Scout can earn and the highest in this troop’s age group (10-11).

The girls are hosting a Virtual Drive to compile items and money into Welcome Bags from the Ronald McDonald House.

Already, they’ve put together Birthday Bags designated for foster children at Straight From the Heart and Art Kits for foster girls at Casa De Amparo in Vista.

The troop has even created an excellent website to help people find and support their work.

Troop 1942 started together in kindergarten and attend various schools around San Diego County or are homeschooled.

The troop members, Kayla Newton, Harrison Lupo, Sophie Turner, Chloe Williams, Isabelle Faris, Penelope Pollard and Liv Morley joined KUSI to talk about their work.

Two girls, Emma Pickering and Lily Barstad couldn’t be at the meeting.
