Members of American Heritage Girls (AHG) will turn out in full force September 15 to perform service projects in their own communities. Spokesperson Patti Garibay tells OneNewsNow about a few of the many activities….
The purpose of the celebration is to develop an outward focus on servant leadership….
“Starting at the young age of five years old these girls develop a heart and really a soul for wanting to serve others, to truly live out the gospel and put legs on their faith,” Garibay shares. “It is so neat to see the girls just loving to do service, and they actually earn service stars that they can wear upon their uniform.”
The AHG spokesperson adds that the emphasis on service helps develop a young girl into a woman of integrity — something American Heritage Girls seeks to do through Christ.
The organization is expecting 100 percent growth this year, as parents continue to search for a Christian alternative to the Girl Scouts.
