Girl Scouts from North Omaha recently teamed up with the Omaha Black Police Officers Association to make the world a better place!
Working with police officers and the Nebraska Watershed Network, Girl Scout Troop 84178 from Central Park Elementary beautified Fontenelle Park, while Troop 84281 from Sherman Elementary worked its magic at Levi Carter Park.
At each park, the groups picked up trash and tested the pond or lake water as part of community service projects to protect the planet. Then, in true Girl Scout style, they roasted S’mores with police officers and celebrated a job well done!
Both troops are part of a Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska initiative that brings Girl Scouting activities to girls living in metro areas classified as underserved. The Girl Scout council provides structure, volunteer support and financial assistance to girls who would otherwise not have the resources to participate.
Our Community Outreach program gives EVERY Nebraska girl the opportunity to be a Girl Scout!
The program is funded in part by the United Way of the Midlands and reflects both agencies’ efforts to create sustainable community solutions through collaboration.
