A Phoenix-based Girl Scout troop helped a local food pantry in a big way.
Phoenix Girl Scout Daisy Troop 3589 — a Desert Ridge group — started a donation drive where its members gave away almost 250 boxes of Girl Scout cookies and more than 15 bags of food and supplies to the Jewish Family & Children’s Service Just 3 Things Food Pantry.
Members of the food pantry were “overwhelmed” at the support from the local girls, who embody Girl Scouts’ mission to help make their community a better place, according to a press release.
The troop initiated the donation drive on its own and started a project that had a “meaningful” purpose behind it for its community project.
“Even while wearing masks and social distancing, the Girl Scout Daisies worked hard to benefit the common good. Despite the limitations during the Covid-19 pandemic, Daisy Troop 3589 wanted to engage in a meaningful community service project,” the press release said.
The troop is part of the Girl Scouts–Arizona Cactus-Pine Council.
