Brownie Troop 2960
Hope Center director Danielle Pillans gave the girls from Brownie Troop 2960 a tour of the Hope Center. Pillans explained that the Hope Center is a pregnancy resource center that offers pregnancy tests, sonograms and parenting classes for moms and dads in Navarro County. She also explained how the moms and dads earn “baby bucks” when they come to classes, and get to buy new items they might need for their baby. The girls listened intently and asked questions along the way. Renata Saucedo explained that the six girls from James L. Collins Catholic School sold Girl Scout cookies from January to April this year for fundraising. The second and third grade girls voted to donate $300 to the Hope Center for “the babies.” Pillans thanked the girls telling them she would be “going to Wal Mart to buy diapers for the baby store!” The girls were thrilled knowing they helped the sweet newborn babies they saw in the center with the brand new mommies and daddies. The girls finished their busy day with a trip to get a cupcake downtown.
