Girl Scout Troop 2669 Brownies, Leaders and Parents Although we hear bad news every day on TV, newspapers and other media, there are many more stories about people making a difference in their communities. Girl Scout Troop 2669 is one of those good stories.

The Troop Brownies held a food drive that contributed 136 lbs. of groceries to the Food Bank.

Delivering the groceries was not all that took place. The Brownies with their parents and Troop leaders went the extra mile by helping the Food Bank volunteers process the groceries. They formed six teams and assigned different tasks.

Starting with unloading the groceries, they formed a human chain passing the bags to each other. Another team weighed each bag and recorded it. A third team formed another chain to send the groceries to the second floor. At that point, another team unpacked grocery bags and put food items on a table for yet another team to check expiration dates. A sixth team sorted the food by food category and placed the items on the shelves. The entire task took only a half hour to complete!

Girl Scout Troop 2669 went above and beyond collecting food by volunteering to sort and store these groceries. In the process, they saved our volunteers 5-6 hours of work. What is more important is the character that is molded in the lives of the girls in this Troop. The leaders and parents are imparting what it means to be kind by carrying out good acts that help our needy neighbors. No one should go without food. Girl Scout Troop 2669 took a big step in their donation and labor of love to help their neighbors.

Kiski Valley Food Bank sends a big shout out to Girl Scout Troop 2669 Brownies and their parents! And thank you Troop Leader Lindsey Katora-Pityk and Co-Leader Erin Hubbard for your investment! Girl Scout Troop 2669 meets Tuesdays at Kiski Area High School. You are welcome to visit and learn more about this great Troop.
