Food and Basic Needs Drive 11/11 - 11/24
Tuesday, November 19, 2019 9:05 AM

If you've already brought in one (or more!) items--thank you! If you haven't, you still have time! Let's keep working toward making Thanksgiving just a little more comfortable for everyone in our community.
 
4th Grade Girl Scout Troop 17804 is partnering with France 44 Cheese Shop to do a Thanksgiving food and basic needs drive through Sunday the 24th. Items will be collected in the lobby at Burroughs as well as at France 44 Cheese Shop, located at 44th St and France Ave. S. Please bring non-perishable healthy pantry staples and low-sodium, low-sugar canned goods to feed families and basic needs, including baby products and personal care products. Examples of foods and goods can be seen here
   
Our charitable partner and recipient of the food drive is VEAP, a basic needs organization whose programs include access to healthy foods, social services, housing stability and supportive services. Questions? Email troop leader Lisa Lynch
