"We have to complete all the steps of the Bronze Award while the girls are still Juniors," Meehan said. "They officially bridge to Cadettes at the end of September. The new Girl Scouting year starts in October of every year."
If the work is not completed before then, the girls won't be eligible for the award.
"Once we have all the suitcases compiled, we plan on bringing them to DSS, and they will distribute them to kids in need as they enter Madison County Foster Care," Meehan said.
