Two girls from Brownie Troop 40169 represented their troop as they made a  donation to Toys for Tots at a Dec. 18 event sponsored by the Leitersburg Cinemas in Hagerstown. The girls used the proceeds from selling cookies last year to purchase the toys. They decided last January that they would use some of the money earned for a fun activity and a donation of toys. They had their fun activity at Pump It Up but were waiting for the right opportunity for the toy donation. After reading about boxes of stolen Toys for Tots boxes in the Chambersburg, Pa., area, the decision was made to help the organization run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, which helps needy children in the area.
