Girl Scout Cadette Troop 30113 is sponsoring a Silver Tree for elderly Marion residents who need help this Christmas. The troop is sponsoring the project to support elderly residents on fixed income who don’t have family nearby to celebrate with.
Gift suggestions will be placed on a tree at Tampa State Bank, and people can pick up a star, buy the gift, and return it to the bank with the star, wrapped or unwrapped, until Dec. 7.
Recipients will be anonymous. Anyone who knows an elderly resident who could use a Christmas gift can contact a local pastor or cadette troop leader Traci Helmer at the bank.
Troop members are Destiny Boudreaux, Drew Helmer, Jenna Helmer, Emmy Hess, Cassie Meyer, Tori Shults, and Skylar Thornbro. Traci Helmer, Donna Hajek, and Marsha Meyer lead the troop.
