Video: Girl Scouts Help Elderly In Columbus

COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) — With Thanksgiving less than a week away, some local girl scouts wanted to help some elderly residents Saturday.

The Lowndes County Girl Scout Service unit made and delivered fruit baskets to the Vineyard Court Nursing Home in Columbus Saturday afternoon. The service tagged as “The Fruit Of The Spirit” was put together to showcase the girls love and compassion to the community.

Saturday’s service was to teach the young girl scouts what the gift of giving means and that acts of kindness such as delivering fruit baskets, can be rewarding; not only to the receiver but to the giver as well.
