Troy Girl Scout troops pick up trash in honor of 3 Girl Scouts killed in Wisconsin

Several Girl Scout Troops spent Sunday afternoon outdoors picking up trash around Cookson Elementary School and Campbell Park, according to News Center 7's Northern Bureau Chief Steve Baker.

This was done in memory of the three Girl Scouts that were killed earlier this month by a pickup truck while they were picking up roadside trash in Wisconsin.

“At this age especially to get out and be able to do something active really helps them feel like they’re honoring those girls,” said Troy Girl Scout Leader Alex Denney Hedrick.
