Erath County Girl Scouts recently enjoyed a day of fun and learning at the Scouting Out Nature Event presented by Sigma Alpha, an Agricultural Sorority of Tarleton State University.

The girls were encouraged to bring their spare change for Sigma Alpha’s Happy Hooves Philanthropy Project. The funds will be use to help an African community purchase a water buffalo. A water buffalo can lead hungry families out of poverty and give them a chance for a bright future filled with hope and free from hunger.
