Old American flags no longer fit to fly are being turned into inspirational gifts by a Colorado Girl Scouts troop, KCNC-TV reported.
“We’re working on bagging and also cutting the stars out to send to fallen heroes and also to hand out around the community to first responders,” said Isabella Lucero, a member of Girl Scouts Troop 3979.
The girls work on the stars throughout the year, about once or twice a month, the TV station reported.
The Girl Scouts have send about 30,000 stars to agencies and families across the nation, the TV station reported.
“Those are hard, but then it’s encouraging too that we are doing good work and we need to keep it up,” Carol Lucero told KCNC.
