Troop 70757 chose Blessings in a Bag for their Hometown Heroes for the 2020 Girl Scout Cookie Program. Blessings in a Bag is a local non-profit that gathers food of which they pack into backpacks and deliver to local schools every Friday. They provide meals for kids during the weekend when they aren’t able to get school lunches. The kids who receive these backpacks are those in the most need.
With COVID-19 closing the schools, these backpacks are needed now more than ever. Our troop donated 200 packages to Blessings in a Bag. They filled two weeks worth of backpacks.
We want to hear how your girl is using her Girl Scout skills by taking initiative, caring for the community, and Girl Scouting at home. She can send in her story here.
