Brownie and Daisy Girl Scouts at Lake Castle Slidell Private School recently made a sweet contribution to Slidell Ladies for Liberty, which sends monthly care packages to local soldiers serving overseas.
While selling Girl Scout Cookies, the kindergartners and first- and second-graders also asked for cookie donations for the soldiers.
Their efforts brought in 150 boxes of cookies, which Slidell Ladies for Liberty shipped to the local soldiers the group has adopted.
Slidell Ladies for Liberty has donation boxes in and around Slidell, and receives gifts of money and merchandise from schools, organizations and businesses. The volunteer group, which started in 2007, mails about 150 boxes each month.

Updated information, including packing days for 2015, can be found on the Slidell Ladies for Liberty Facebook page.
