CRANFORD, NJ- All three of Orange Avenue School’s 7th grade Girl Scout Cadette troops joined forces to help Cranford’s senior citizens and work with Cranford Family Care during 2017’s Girl Scout Week.

The three troops teamed up to bake breads for Cranford Family Care and make spring-themed cards for Cranford seniors and residents of Atria Cranford.

“It was both rewarding and a very fun afternoon,” Elayna Torsone, Cranford Girl Scouts individual troop liaison for media publications, said.

Girl Scout Week is an annual tradition for the organization that always falls around March 12, the birthday of the Girl Scouts. It’s an opportunity for the girls to reflect on what it means to be a Girl Scout and how the scouts can make the world a better place, according to the organization’s website.
