Flowers for Reading Girl Scout Fundraiser Stolen
Flowers placed on a lawn on Forest Street as part of a girl scout fundraiser were stolen last night.
Flowers that were presented to a Reading home on Forest Street as part of a Reading Girl Scout Fundraiser were stolen last night. According to girl scout mother Michelle Goldner, the girl scouts are hoping to have the flowers returned as soon as possible.
Reading Girl Scout Troop 71273 is currently running a fundraiser called Showers of Flowers. Those who want to participate in the fundraiser pay to have a friend or family member’s lawn covered with 20 colorful pinwheel flowers. The flowers can be a present for a birthday, graduation or just because. Proceeds will go toward the troop’s trip to Rocking Horse Ranch next year. Flowers placed on a Forest Street lawn were recently stolen, and the scouts are hoping to get the flowers back.
"Our girls are just heart broken," Goldner said.
The scouts have already raised close to $200 working hard on this fundraiser. If you know anything about the missing flowers, or if you are a florist that wants to help the scouts, contact: GirlScoutFlowers@hotmail.com.
