EFPN Received Visits from Girl Scout Troops

Two girl scout troops came to the EFPN offices to learn about EFPN.  Girls Scout Troop 50721  brought boxes of girl scout cookies. The girls counted the boxes in and  put them on the shelves in our warehouse. Our pantry coordinators took the boxes from our warehouse for their pantry shelves. The cookies were a special treat for our clients. The girls also counted a food donation that had come in and shelved the items. Girl Scout Troop 50574 brought items for birthday kits.  They had a tour of the SAMS pantry, one of our eight pantries.  They were given the task of selecting a weeks worth of food for a two person family.  We want to thank these troops for supporting EFPN and their willingness to learn about our organization.  We also want to thank their leaders and their parents for teaching them to be concerned for those in need.
