Virginia Beach Girl Scout Troop Participates in Day to Serve

In Girl Scouts, girls are always looking for ways to make the world a better place. On Sunday, September 14, members of Girl Scout Troop 924 from Virginia Beach spent the day participating in an International Coastal Clean-up at Little Island Park, located in the Sandbridge section of Virginia Beach. Not only did the girls pick up trash and litter to clean the beach, but they also recorded everything that they found in order to submit it to a data summary that is used by an international organization for conservation research.

Alexandria, Eliza, Natalia, Journey and Kelsie from Troop 924
helped clean the beach as a Day to Serve community service project.

The members of Troop 924 chose to do this community service project as part of Day to Serve, an effort across Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia and Washington D.C. during the month of September to promote volunteerism. Day to Serve is an annual event intended to break down barriers, build friendships, unite people and make a positive impact on the community.
