Last week, Zionsville Girl Scout Troop #1880 presented $2,900 to the Indy Honor Flight veterans at a banquet hosted in honor of the vets traveling to Washington D.C. this year.
The girls, who are mostly fifth graders, initially hoped to raise $450 to send one veteran on an Indy Honor Flight. After months of fundraising, they will now be able to send six.
The girls received a standing ovation after serving lunch to the veterans.
“This is completely selfless,” said Valerie Swack, the mom of Girl Scout Kate Swack. “The girls are learning a lot about themselves and helping others.”
