The girls in Brownie Troop 55125 based in Woodbury were looking for an organization to for with their Take Action Project. They like dogs, they are kids, so R.E.A.D. Minnesota was a wonderful fit for them!
The girls and their two co-leaders, Jenny Britten and Amy McKenna, were very generous in their time and thoughtfulness for R.E.A.D. They donated many new books, many pre-read books, and blankets. All of the items will be much appreciated by the young readers and the R.E.A.D. volunteers.
Thanks, Brownies, for a job well done!
Here is the picture from the April troop meeting when the girls had a chance to read with R.E.A.D. dog Franklin.
