A Disposable Cake Pan
Birthday Themed Plates & Napkins
Tie Dyed T-Shirts
The girls had a great time assembling and decorating the packaging and learned more than a little about how good it feels to do what you can to help those in need. Kudo's to the leaders and parents of the troop for doing what they can to instill a sense of civic responsibility and social awareness as they prepare these girls to be leaders and achievers in the next generation!
The girls hand delivered the packages to the office of Lisa Cronin, Volunteer Liaison for CCMI at the Fort Myers soup kitchen. She welcomed the girls, applauded their efforts, and took them on a "behind the scenes" tour of the offices, grounds, food bank, and finally the soup kitchen. The experience of the tour opened the eyes of the Girl Scouts and their leaders to the overwhelming need and the limited resources CCMI has at its disposal to combat hunger and provide sustenance to the needy. As we said our goodbye's and left the facility both the girls and the adults were already talking about their next project!
Below are pictures and a video of the excursion.
