Troop 377: Giving Back

"GS Troop 377 plus the Groten 'ohana from troop 617 donated GS cookies (~ 2 cases) to the Boy's & Girl's Club of Hawaii at the Spaulding Clubhouse. 
Each year we choose an organization to donate our cookies.  The last 2 years it was to the BGCH.  The year before that we donated several cases of cookies to the Islands Hospice Home in Palolo.  Before that we donated several years to Family Program's Hawaii.  Next year we will choose another organization."
