Girl Scout Daisies from Troop 45741 help at Oregon Food Bank

Girl Scout Daisies from Troop 45741 (SU15) had the pleasure of donating an afternoon of their time to help repackage bins of carrots for the Oregon Food Bank earlier this year. They had no idea what their assignment would be prior to arrival, but were willing to help out wherever they were needed. Along with other volunteers that afternoon, their efforts helped to provide 11,557 meals to those less fortunate, which equated to 13,868 pounds of carrots that were packaged into family-sized bags. The girls had a wonderful time knowing that they played a part in helping our community, and are anxious to return again. The Oregon Food Bank can accept volunteers as young as 6 years old, so this was an excellent opportunity for our Daisies to learn what community service is all about.
