Members of Girl Scout Brownie Troop 20018 of Walpole, NH lived up to their promise to "help people at all times" by holding a food drive for Our Place Drop-in Center.
Members of the troop brought their collection to the drop-in center, where they learned how Our Place provides food to families who are struggling to put meals on the table.
"The girls were genuinely interested in the whole process and had lots more questions on the ride home," said troop leader Jacqueline Caserta. "We'll be having a follow-up discussion with the girls on this topic at our next meeting as well."
Caserta said she feels exposing the troop's members to community service is an important role for Girl Scouts.
Troop 20018 is a member of the Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains Council, a recent amalgam of the Vermont and New Hampshire councils.
Our Place is a daytime shelter and food shelf located at 4 Island Street in Bellows Falls. For more details visit www.ourplacevt.org.
