A website for:
People Who Want to Help People!
We are Summit Girl Scout Troop 45273 and we're working towards earning our Bronze Award. We have been finding out about local organizations here in Summit who need support, donations and volunteers. As part of our research we've helped at a local food bank and did a collection drive for them, made soup for homeless people and baked cookies for those without enough food. We've brought everything we learned together here in our website and also produced a pamphlet to share with local families, students and anyone who would like to help make a difference in Summit. We hope you will use this resource help people who need help in our town.
