GSHOM and UMCULocal girls from limited-resource families will have the opportunity to become Girl Scouts thanks to a recent donation of $5,000 to the Girl Scouts Heart of Michigan (GSHOM) by the University of Michigan Credit Union (UMCU).

Local businesses that helped make this donation possible include Found Gallery, Spun, Rock Paper Scissors, Underground Printing, The Bo Store, Collected Works, Vault of Midnight, Bivouac, Three Chairs Company, Le Bon Macaron, Heavenly Metal, Mudpuddles Toy Store, The Local Bike Shop Ann Arbor, Underground Sounds, Imagine Three Beauty Studio, Go! Ice Cream, Ypsilanti Running Company, Puffer Reds, University Flower Shop, 16 Hands and Complete Runner.
