In Arizona, one in five children go to bed hungry. Girl Scouts from the East Valley neighborhood wanted to join in the fight against hunger by volunteering at Feed My Starving Children.
18 Girl Scouts joined other volunteers in assembling rice, soy, vegetables and vitamin mixtures into plastic bags. They also weighed the items, sealed them into boxes and help loaded them onto a pallet to get shipped to Thailand. At the end of the project, the girls and other volunteers packed a total of 109 boxes and 23,544 meals feeding 64 children for one year.
Girl Scouts of the East Valley neighborhood are helping create a world where no child goes to bed hungry. These young ladies are truly making the world a better place!
