Abilene Girl Scouts hold donation drive for Harvey victims


ABILENE, Texas - Girl Scout Troop 7200 of Abilene are doing their part to help with Harvey relief.

They had a donation drive on Saturday to collect donations. Those donations will be taken to Corpus Christi and Houston for storm victims as well as Abilene State Park.

The Junior Level Leader, Misti Hauger, said that the girls want to help.

"The girls are young and we can't go and help out in Corpus or in Houston right now," Hauger said. "It's just not safe for the younger girls to be there, but they wanted to be able to help out so this is one way that they could."

They are collecting items such as, toiletries, cleaning supplies, bottled water, blankets, books, crayons, pet food, and more.

They sent out a truck loaded with supplies on Friday and they said they'll have one ready to go on Monday. They will also be doing another donation drive on Monday at the Lowes in south Abilene.
