Salvation Army

Help Fight Hunger and Earn a Newly Designed Patch for 2015!

Join the Girl Scouts and The Salvation Army
to fight hunger! Of all the challenges our communities face, hunger is one that can be faced head on.

Want to know how you can help? It’s simple and easy this year. Ask your friends, relatives and neighbors to fill grocery bags with nonperishable food items and leave the bags on their front porches for you to pick up and deliver to The Salvation Army food pantries. The Salvation Army will provide donation door hangers along with information to help you succeed!

Who: Daisies, Brownies, Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassadors

When: Friday, April 10, 2015: Registration deadline. Door hangers will be mailed to the Leaders.
