My name is Jenna Kamsickas, a Northville High School Sophomore. I am hosting a book drive to support schools that may not have the means to purchase books for their classrooms. I will be donating the books collected to two kindergarten classrooms, a third-grade classroom, and several other K-5 classrooms at Jefferson Elementary School in Redford, MI. In your child's school, I have placed a box for donations. It would mean so much if you were able to donate new or gently used books, Thanks!

Girl Scout Troop 40546 Holiday Game Drive

Girl Scout Troop #40546 is collecting new board games
for less fortunate families this holiday season.

Let’s Play

You know the feeling of waking up on Christmas morning and unwrapping a brand new present that you asked for? Well if you’ve had that feeling before, how would you feel if you asked so many times but you still didn’t get any presents? That’s why we and the rest of the fifth grade Girl Scout Troop #40546 created this project to help families that can’t afford games and/or other presents this holiday season.

There will be a box in the main lobby of the building. If you can donate brand new board games we will be collecting them until December 7th. To everybody who is willing to help thank you.
