Local Daisy Scouts from Troop 180 are helping Feeding Empty Little Tummies feed homeless school children in the area. The troop used a portion of its Girl Scout cookie money to purchase food to donate to the program, which fills the backpacks of needy children with food for the weekend.
“We are extremely proud of these girls and their accomplishments,” troop leader Diane Hennessey says. “They are learning at a young age to be a part of the solution toward helping our homeless hungry children.”
