Local Girl Scouts donate over 100 toys to Toys for Tots

Hampden County

Local Girl Scouts have made our Toys for Tots toy drive part of their mission.

More than two dozen Girl Scouts, Brownies and Daisies brought armloads of toys to our 22News lobby Tuesday evening.

The Girl Scout laws urge these young women to be helpful, kind and considerate.

This journey to Chicopee has become an annual tradition for these girls.  

Chicopee Troop Leader Judy Soja told 22News, “Well, we did this last year, and the kids are so excited that they really look forward to bringing a gift in for the children that don’t have as much as what they do.”

The scouts, all between the ages of five and eight brought in more than 100 gifts.

Soja estimated 30 girls each brought more than one gift.
