Girls on the Run collects donations for folks in need
RICHMOND HILL, GA (WTOC) -
Chilly temperatures didn't dampen the giving spirit of a few girls in Richmond Hill. On Wednesday, the Girls on the Run program was out collecting jackets, coats, sweaters and blankets for those in need. The girls came up with the project and started taking donations all by themselves. They say they have learned great lessons about teamwork.
"You know, you see a problem as one person, you may not feel like you can fix that problem, but if you affect the lives of two people, to get people together, you can spread and make a bigger impact," said Jennifer Kantanen, Girls on the Run coach.
The community's outpouring of support has been so overwhelming that they are extending their coat drive through next week. Donations can be dropped of at the Georgia Game Changers of the Ice Cream Stop in Richmond Hill.
