Teddy bear drive to teach leadership

The third key - the Take Action Key - is what the girls will accomplish with the drive.

"[They had to] find something in the community that needed fixing or attention or something they could do just to make the community better," Dumas explained. "They think of the idea, they make the decision, they plan how they're going to do it, and then of course [May 19] will be the actual 'taking action.'"

She said she hopes the community will contribute to the cause to help the girls complete their goal and help other children.

"It will help them see what they're doing to help make a difference in the community," Dumas said. "It will help the children that actually need them."

"It's a good way to help two community associations," said Thompson. "[The Girl Scouts are] doing a great thing for us and in turn we get to give back their contributions and their donations back to the community. It's kind of friends helping friends, neighbors helping neighbors."

If unable to bring a donation the day of the event, contact co-leader Debbie Jolicoeur at 298-4611.
