American Heritage Girls Make Big Impact This Christmas Season with Our Nation’s Heroes
CINCINNATI, Ohio, Dec. 22, 2015 /Christian Newswire/ — During this Christmas season, American Heritage Girls demonstrate the true spirit of giving by honoring Fire Departments, Police Departments and fallen soldiers nationwide.
Troops prepared and delivered treats to their local Fire and Police stations as thanks to the community’s first responders. The small acts of kindness came from big hearts of gratitude. These giving projects are a vehicle of practical instruction which AHG provides through the character development program for girls 5-18.
Wreaths Across America Day on December 12 stands as an additional example of American Heritage Girl’s commitment to service. Troops across the nation assisted in placing thousands of wreaths upon military graves, this being part of the annual ceremony that gives tribute to deceased military. Throughout the country, uniformed American Heritage Girls aided in the placement of wreaths in numerous veteran cemeteries.
53rd District, Ohio House Representative, Tim Derickson is just one of the many State Representatives throughout the country that attended their local ceremony in which American Heritage Girls served as an active part. “I am honored to have the opportunity to commend American Heritage Girls Troop Ohio 1412 and the 288th Pathfinder Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol on sponsoring 621 wreaths. The time and effort Ohio Troop 1412 has dedicated to this organization, and to veterans’ events throughout the year is truly remarkable. Every member of this Troop should be proud of her contributions and selflessness.”
