Westborough – Westborough Girl Scout troops 30630 and 30633 volunteered recently at the Great Brook Valley housing development in Worcester. Great Brook Valley is part of the Worcester Housing Authority (WHA).?The Cadette and Senior Girl Scouts sorted the monthly donations of household items received from local businesses to help families who are transitioning out of a shelter.

The girls worked for two days with Erin Wilson, WHA transitional housing coordinator and former Girl Scout. She spoke with the girls about the process of transitioning families from a shelter to an apartment, what her role is, and what help is provided to the families.?The girls were educated about social services and how they can help. Troop members will work with Wilson on a regular basis to help organize the monthly donations.
