Girl Scouts Donate Cookies, Food to Local Charity

Girl Scout Junior Troop 287 of Thompson Intermediate School in Alabaster did more than just sell cookies during cookie season. They chose Manna Ministry as their charity for their Gift of Caring project, and they donated several cases of Girl Scout cookies to the ministry.

The girls also held a community food drive to benefit the charity. During their booth sale, Abbie, Molly, Alyssa, Shelby, Jessie, Gillian and Isabelle promoted the event with flyers that they passed out to individuals and local businesses. At the event, they collected three shopping carts full of food. The event was part of the girls' Take Action project to complete the Agent of Change Journey.
