We covered GS cookie boxes with floral paper to keep in line with the "blooming" part of the service project. We ended up with over 12 boxes over flowing! The girls in turn received a tour of the old jail and the police station.
The girls felt so good about this project that it has spurred more ideas for more service projects.....
