Collects for SPAN and Our Troops

Girl Scouts donatingGirl Scout Troop #10227 facilitated the annual Halloween candy collection drive at Benfield Elementary School. This drive benefited our community on many levels. The Girl Scout troop partnered with Dr. Collins Pediatric Dentistry and Dr. O’Reilly & Assoc., both of whom matched the number of pounds of candy collected with a monetary donation. Benfield students donated over 300 pounds of candy to this cause!!!! The monetary donation was then donated to SPAN. Through this partnership, the girls were able to collect $490.00 to give to SPAN. The local dentists then donated the collected candy to Operation Welcome Home, which is a program to support military personnel returning home. The girl scout troop is led by Laura Masone, Cristi Bishop and Elizabeth Nelson.
