Girls Scouts Give Back to the Workers Clearing the Slide That Blocked Hwy 101
Caltrans was impressed with Girl Scout Troop 90747’s “selfless donation of time and supplies to the slide workers” and posted the following on Caltrans District One’s Facebook page:
Girl Scout Troop 90747 from Eureka brought by a bunch of supplies for tired workers down at the Leggett slide!
The troop brought in flats of water, chips, granola bars, and – of course – cookies to help make the arduous task of clearing U.S. Highway 101 of slide debris just a little easier.
They met with acting Deputy District Director for Program/Project Management Gary Johnson, who gave the troop a letter of thanks for their generosity and commitment to community service.The girls had the opportunity to ask about the slide and some of the safety measures we take to ensure nobody gets hurt while working to get the North Coast reconnected to the rest of coastal California.
The supplies are being transferred to the site this morning. Thank you again to the girls (and leaders!) of Troop 90747!
