Several members of Girl Scout Juniors Troop 4554 are in the main office waiting room at United Community Ministries’ Fordson Road location, the site of their Bronze Award project. The Bronze Award is the highest honor a Girl Scout Junior can achieve. Their project included painting the waiting room, purchasing new book shelves and a table, and hosting a drive to collect children's books for the waiting area.

The girls delivered a $200 cash donation to purchase fresh food for the UCM Food Pantry. After touring the pantry a few months ago and learning more about people who go hungry in the community, the troop wanted to do more to help. They decided to host a bake sale this spring and donated the proceeds to help feed children and families in need.
