Girl Scouts at Neal Middle School in Durham helped create a community garden to provide fresh produce for local homeless shelters and raise awareness of hunger in their home county.
The project was part of the "Discover the Leader in YOU! Leadership Series" program at the school, a partnership between Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines, United Way of the Greater Triangle’s Women’s Leadership Council and Communities in Schools of Durham.
The Scouts who completed the project were sixth-graders Nilka Lopez and Amaya Flowers; seventh-graders Thiniyia Bess and Amari Wilkins; and Yency Herrera, an eighth-grader. All live in Durham.
