Dodson Elementary School’s Junior Girl Scout Troop 40677 would like to thank the community for their generous contributions of food to support their food drives in Canton. We also appreciate all of the support and flexibility of the principal and the teachers at Dodson in executing the food drive at their school, as well as the support and donations from , , , and .
The girls helped fight hunger by planning and executing a week-long food drive at Dodson Elementary School and held another food drive in their community at Kroger.
The girls also earned their Girl Scout Bronze Award, the highest honor in Junior Girl Scouts, by executing the project. The food drives were a huge success with collections of 2,751 food items for the Open Door Ministry, which is a Canton food pantry. The Director at the told Troop Leader Vicki Sheahan that this was the most successful food drive in the history of Open Door Ministry!
It’s been so rewarding to take on such a big and meaningful project that inspires others to want to make a difference in the community too!
