The Glitter Girls learned to count by 5s by selling Camp Fire candy

Our Starflight Campfire Group would like to thank the residents of Shoreline for making our first year selling Campfire candy a successful endeavor! We are the Glitter Girls from the Hillwood and Richmond Beach area. We are kindergarteners and first graders and this is our first year in Campfire. Part of being a Campfire girl is selling delicious candy. Candy sales help support the organization with program development and camp scholarship. Some candy purchased went to “Operation Homefront”—a program where the candy goes to military families. A portion of the candy sales goes back to our group so we can participate in activities that will help us learn and grow.

During our sales at Fred Meyer on 185th, Central Market, and the Richmond Beach QFC, we met many wonderful people. Everyone was polite, treated us with respect, and gave us lots of smiles. We met many Campfire girls who had great stories to share about their time in Campfire. We had people ask us about Campfire and what we were doing with our proceeds. We practiced what we’d say so we appreciated the opportunity to share Campfire’s goals. We learned how to make change and we are now experts in counting by 5’s.

Thank you Shoreline Residents for being supportive to the community and helping us, the younger generation, develop into helpful citizens.

Sincerely,

Glitter Girls (Anna Klem, Ausia Guerrero, Averi White, Cassandra White, Eleanor Sargent, Maren Bell, Megan Chalcraft, Scarlett VonGunten, Sophia Wood and their parents)
