A Southborough Girl Scout troop is collecting items for families in need. Troop 89255 is working to help Project Just Because.

As the troop shared in its flyer, the local charity is dedicated to:

helping as many men, women and children as we can. It is our goal to help families by being a resource for items that families need, while creating an element of hope for a brighter tomorrow.
