New Lenox Brownie Girl Scout Troop 256 and Junior Girl Scout Troop 135 came together in the hopes of making Christmas a little brighter for children in need. 

This is the second year the girls participated together in Operation Christmas Child, according to a troop news release. The girls packed 15 shoe boxes filled with toiletries and other items. This year, the boxes were shipped to India. The older girls have been putting together the shoe boxes for many years and were happy to show the younger girls the ropes, according to the release.
