Carmel,Indiana Brownie troop #1516 collect shoes in their little red wagon

For 3 weeks, the girls of Girl Scout Brownie Troop 1516 from Carmel, Indiana. collected shoes for WaterStep. Weaving through the neighborhoods with their red wagon, the girls have been knocking on doors, sharing the message about the need for safe water, and asking people for their shoes. Their troop leader, Tabitha Hernandez, spear-headed the whole effort, arranging for the shoe drive to count as a Community Service project. At the conclusion of their collections, the girls will each receive an official Girl Scout shoe collection badge. Thus far, Brownie Troop 1516 has collected 8 bags of shoes, and who knows how many people have heard about the need for safe water as a result of their project. What an inspiration!
Also, as a result of the shoe program, Tabitha’s church has decided to get trained at our water school and bring safe water to the communities they sponsor in Haiti. This is a perfect example of a success story of how easy collecting shoes can be. What a great story, THANKS CoraLyn for sharing this story with us, way to go Indianapolis WaterStep team and THANKS to troop #1516 for all your hard work. We hope this encourages others to do a shoe drive for WaterStep!!
