The Aegis reports that Harford County Girl Scout Troop 821 is working to raise awareness about hunger in their community.
The article states that the girls had an initial goal of raising 20,000 pounds of food to donate to the Maryland Food Bank. After making a presentation to Rosedale Federal Savings and Loan Association about their project, the bank gave a $3,000 grant for their project, more than enough to help them make their goal. The girls are now working to donate an additional 10,000 to 20,000 pounds of food as well as visiting local grocery stores to inform shoppers about the project.
The troop’s leader Lisa Shue stressed the importance of giving back in the article. “Everybody can make a difference if they try,” She told the Aegis. “It’s as simple as buying one extra item.”
