SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A local Girl Scout troop is fulfilling their oath as they try to help an elderly Spartanburg woman get back on her feet one week after her home flooded. 

Troop 2659 out of Duncan surprised Juanita Kindrick, who turned 70 Thursday, with cupcakes, cleaning supplies and a vow to help clean her home next week. 

Kindrick has had a trying week after floodwaters from last Thursday's flash flood overtook her home on Tennent St. in Spartanburg, but in her time of need, friends said she donated bottles of water to flood victims in Charleston and Columbia. 

Troop 2569 said they will help paint and clean Kindrick's home next Tuesday so she can get back on her feet. 

"We are helping to raise donations of supplies and funds in order to help fix her home," said leader Tricia Milici. "And these girls also are going to donate their time along with the Motor Racing Outreach, they're coming down Tuesday from Charlotte."

There is also a GoFundMe account for Kindrick, raising money for flood-related expenses. Her carpet had to be removed, and some of her belongings were damaged. She has been staying at her granddaughter's home. 

"It's been a neat day," said Kindrick. "I think [these girls] are awesome. I think that they probably have a lot more fun things to do than house work," she added with a laugh.
