On December 4, members of Girl Scout Troop 971 went shopping for a family that they adopted through the United Way. For the second year, the troop adopted a family and purchased gifts at a local discount store, learning the value of money and how to get the most for their dollar. After purchasing the gifts, the girls wrapped the presents. Pictured with the wrapped gifts are (standing, left to right) Harliann Baas, Abbi Bouw; (kneeling) Abby Blank and Maddy Dudley. Through the project, the Girl Scouts also learned that giving is better than receiving.
