It's never easy if your home catches on fire, but it can be especially hard for children. That’s why Troop 613 is giving back to the community by collecting teddy bears for kids in crisis.
"I know a lot of people lost their homes and I thought I would be sad if I lost something, so what better to comfort a child than a teddy bear?" says Girl Scout Junior, Emily.
Troop 613 came up with the idea when they were exploring ways to earn their Bronze Award. The girls worked diligently. They spent a year planning and learning how their work could benefit the community. They ultimately decided to host a teddy bear drive benefitting Phoenix Fire Station 42.
For their remarkable efforts, Troop 613 was featured on News Channel 12 and Arizona Republic.
