Brownie Troop 972 Embraces the Giving Spirit
Making the world a better place is close to our hearts at Girl Scouts.
From the moment a girl joins the Girl Scout Movement, she learns how even the youngest members can make a real difference in their communities. It’s something we Girl Scouts carry with us all our lives.
Meet a brownie in Elk Grove, and hear how her troop worked to make the world a better place, one potato at a time.
My name is Noor. I am a Brownie Girl Scout in Troop 972. I went to the Elk Grove Food Bank and heard that senior fresh produce program ran out of money until January.
I told my mom that it made me feel sad that they couldn’t afford fresh fruits and veggies.
So I decided on Thursday, when I was off from school, I would go to the farmer’s market and buy some fruits and vegetables from the money in my piggy bank.
I told some of my Girl Scout friends and family of what I was doing and they wanted to donate fresh fruits and vegetables too.
I was able to get 206 pounds of food! I bought apples, onions, tomatoes, zucchini, bell peppers, potatoes, grapes and green beans. I also got Renee, the person who showed me around the Elk Grove Food Bank, some flowers and a thank you card for talking with me even on her day off.
She was really nice and I liked making her smile. I hope that the seniors enjoy the fresh fruit and vegetables.
Congratulations to Troop 972 for making the world a better place in Elk Grove and thank you, Noor, for sharing your story.
