Girl Scouts make thousands of scarves for the needy

As the temperature starts to dip, many families out there may not have the money to buy warm clothes.

So, some Girl Scouts are taking action to ensure South Bend children are well prepared for the winter months.
The group from North Point Elementary has spent about a month making more than 1,000 scarves.

Each of the scarves is adorned with pins that represent love and friendship.

The girl scouts spent Sunday afternoon at the Christ Child Society, sorting through the hand-made scarves, and helping gather supplies for families in need.

“I hope it tells them that we really care about them, and no matter how old you are, you can help someone,” said Girl Scout Brooke Dawson.

“I’d love to help people in the future because it feels all warm inside and makes me feel really happy, said another scout, Jasmine White.

The center was a packed house on Sunday.

Junior League members were also there to educate kids on healthy eating.
