Girl Scout Troop 10506 of Corte Madera/Larkspur has demonstrated the spirit of giving back by donating $600 to The Commons Foundation through their successful Girl Scout cookie sales.
“I’m so proud of these girls. They truly exemplify the values of the Girl Scouts, embracing leadership, making a positive impact, and actively engaging in community service,” said Caroline Searle, troop leader.
The girls voted between three local causes and chose The Commons Foundation because they felt Larkspur Library holds an important place in the community.
“These young girls are passionate about reading and love to learn,” Searle said. “Supporting a place that will grow as they will was an obvious choice.”
Last year, TCF reached its goal of raising $5 million to fund and build a new modern library for Larkspur. This year, it embarks on a new campaign to ensure the outdoor areas at The Commons surrounding the new library are as inviting as the library itself, with features such as patios, walkways, raised beds, arbors, vegetation, amenities for cyclists and pedestrians, seated areas, benches, water features, lighting and a public square. The troop’s contribution will help create these outdoor spaces.
“We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Girl Scout Troop 10506 for their outstanding efforts in making a difference and contributing to the future of our community,” said Ann Morrison, president of The Commons Foundation. “Their generosity sets an example for others to follow, showcasing the power of youth in creating a brighter tomorrow.”
