Tiny Workers Make A Big Impact In Matthew Flood Relief

Triad Girl Scouts Collect Items for Matthew Victims

SEAGROVE, NC -- The Girl Scout Pledge says, "On my honor, I will try to serve God and my country, to help people at all times and to live by the Girl Scout law."

On Monday, that pledge was put into action by three pint-sized workers in Seagrove, North Carolina.

"We have been collecting for the flood victims in Lumberton," Girl Scout Troop 13067 Leader, Candy Jones said.

"Because people lost their homes and their houses got flooded," second grader, Nasya Girllo said.

The troop loaded an entire truck and trailer full of donated goods including clothes, food, water, furniture, baby toys and hygiene products. They'll deliver it to Lumberton on Tuesday.

"They lost everything that they always wanted and that they loved so much," Mina McReynolds Jones, a first grader, said.

Like the girls, the project started small but with a lot of heart and a little sweat...

"We ended up with an entire trailer full," Jones said.

After a long day of hard work, Mina said she and her fellow Girl Scouts were "pooped," but happy they did this. 

And while they knew the Girl Scout pledge by heart, now they know a little but more about what it means.
