George, Iowa — Residents at the Good Samaritan Society Home and a Hope Haven Waiver House, both in George will have a merrier Christmas this year thanks to the local girl scouts.
According to George-Little Rock Girl Scout Troop Leader Jackie Stettnichs, their scouts raised enough money to give gifts to all of the residents at the two facilities.
She tells us that the group was looking for a Christmas service project.
She says there were 28 residents, and each one received a gift basket. She says the money to buy the gifts came from several places.
She tells us what was in the gift baskets.
This is the second year of the new George-Little Rock Girl Scout Troop, says Stettnichs. She says there was a troop years ago, but it had been several years since there was an active group in George. Stettnichs says she was a girl scout as a girl, and when Dakota Horizons did a presentation in George and said they’d help someone start a troop, she took them up on the offer. Stettnichs has two girls who are part of the local troop.
