Brownies reach out to help families through Englewood Helping Hand

Brownie Troop 304

Brownie Troop 304

Updated Sept. 28 with addi­tional dona­tion drop-off site.

ENGLEWOOD, Fla. – Brownie Troop 304 is work­ing on a quest to help oth­ers locally and has picked Engle­wood Help­ing Hand as the recip­i­ent of its efforts.

All the moms in the group shared on Face­book that the Troop is col­lect­ing items – clothes and food.

A rep­re­sen­ta­tive from Help­ing Hands spoke to the girls Thurs­day night about fam­i­lies in need and col­lected all the dona­tions gath­ered, so far. The girls heard how much the fam­i­lies are allowed to get each month and what they are always in need of, such as toi­let paper.

The Brown­ies will be col­lect­ing until the end of the year, includ­ing at the Rotonda Christ­mas Parade, which is sched­uled for 2 p.m. Dec. 5.

Also, though the end of the year, there is a col­lec­tion table at Thor­ough­bred Golf Carts at 3301 Placida Road. Items can be dropped off there from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mon­day through Friday.
