Girl Scout Savannah wants your help

| | Comments (3)

Savannah.jpgHi, my name is Savannah C. (pictured right) I am a Junior Girl Scout in Troop 8062, and we are trying to earn our Girl Scout Bronze Award. I am asking for your support for a special project called "Spooky to be Hungry." This project helps people in Baldwin County get canned food to their families so they can have food, especially during the holidays.

All this takes is three easy steps. First, put a bag with a flyer on your neighbors front door on October 17. Then in one week (October 24), go to that neighbors' house and pick up the bags which should be left on the doorstep. Last, on October 25, bring all the bags to your leader. Go with your troop to the Ecumenical Ministries in Fairhope to drop off the bags between 2 and 4 p.m. My troop will be there collecting, counting, and sorting all of the canned goods.

Last year my troop raised over 500 cans. Just think how many cans all Girl Scout troops in our area could raise. That will certainly make it less "Spooky to be Hungry." After we count all the food, we will report back the wonderful results.

THANK YOU so much for helping us make it LESS "Spooky to be Hungry."

Sincerely,

Savannah

GO GIRLSCOUTS!

Yeah Savannah

Do we have to do pick ups on the 24th only? Can it be rolled over into the next weekend during Halloween?

Troop 8062 will only be at Ecumenical Ministries, Inc. on Sunday, October 25 from 2p-4p. EMI is located at:

EMI - Eastern Shore
564 Fairhope Avenue
Fairhope, Alabama 36532

That would be the optimum time to drop off your canned goods as we will be collecting, counting, and sorting all the donations toward this effort on that day. However, if you cannot make the 25th. EMI is always in need and will certainly collect your goods on a different date. They are not open on the weekends, however, so you will want to deliver them during a weekday during regular business hours. Thanks so much for your support!!!! Sandra Grice, Troop 8062 Troop Leader!
