Share the Harvest
It's that time of year again. Senior troop 6129 - 3201 is coordinating with the Vernon Township Food Pantry to run this year's Thanksgiving food basket drive. Each year, Girl Scout troops from our area have adopted needy families from Vernon Township and put together a box/basket containing a complete Thanksgiving meal. All you have to do is let us know if your troop wants to participate (in previous years, we've had 100% participation from registration area 341), and what size family you will be willing to shop for. Small families are 2-3 people, medium is 3-4 people and large is 6-9 people. All food items need to be non-perishable. A grocery store gift card in the amount of $15-$25 must be included to cover the cost of the turkey and other perishable items like butter and eggs. Troops can take a field trip and go shopping together, or leaders can assign items for girls to bring in.
