‘Girlie Girls’ giving back to the community

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

A group dedicated to providing guidance and mentorship to local girls celebrated their first community service project on Tuesday afternoon in Lake Charles.

Some young ladies from "Girlie Girls" gathered Tuesday at the Landmark Nursing and Rehab facility in Lake Charles.

The girls helped serve a snack to the residents and provided them with some company.

"It makes me feel good because I feel like I'm giving back to the people and I know that there's a lot of people out here struggling and for me to give a helping hand, it's a really good feeling," said Kiyonna Paul.

"I think it's fun," said Taryin White. "I like serving other people. I can give back to the community and it makes me feel better as a person."

The girls say other community outreach plans are in the works including visiting shelters and helping Goodwill.
